Vietnam has a serious crisis of water pollution. Only 39% of the population have access to clean water. The other 61% live in poor conditions or do not have the right amount of wealth to live someplace else where there is clean water.
Not drinking pure water results in sicknesses such as cholera, typhoid, dysentery and malaria. Even though some of these sicknesses can be cured easily, most of the population do not have the amount of money to provide the correct medication for their families. The Mekong River is the main source of fresh water in South Vietnam but has benn polluted with rubbish,sewage and human waste. Even though the Vietnamese government is tackling this problem, they are not working hard enough to fix this problem.
If this petition is filled with at least 75 signatures, I will send it to charities and national governments such as UNICEF, AUS AID, the Australian Government and of course, The Socialist Republic of Vietnam so create solutions such as providing bins and toilets for local areas to use instead of throwing it away in the river.
