Vietnam Water Project


In coordination with the Care to Help Project, the World Community Service Committee of the Bellevue Rotary Club is sponsoring a water project in a Vietnam village called B'Dor, an ethnic minority village of about 2000 people that currently does not have a source for safe drinking, cooking or bathing water. B'Dor is about 80 miles south of Da Lat, in the Central Highlands of Vietnam.

Care to Help Project Director Scott Mantz will be providing photos and progress reports throughout the duration of this project.

I am happy to announce that the Bellevue Rotary sponsored well project at B'Co village in Vietnam has been completed and is in operation! The crew completed the project on November 12, and the opening ceremonies were held on November 15.

VietnamThankYouLtrTHB'Co village is next to B'Dor where we first started drilling, but had no success. The villagers of B'Dor are welcome to come to B'Co to collect clean water, which is a lot easier than walking to where they had been collecting water, not to mention that this is safe water for consumption. Between the two villages, this well will provide safe water to well over 1,000 people.

The villagers have asked me to tell the Bellevue Rotary how much they appreciate what you have given them. They thank you very much. This well will make their lives so much easier.

The local village government has written this thank you letter.

I am very happy to announce that we have hit good water at the second drilling location, B'Co village. The water is of very good quality, and they have excellent flow. The villagers are ecstatic, and they send their sincere that yous to the Bellevue Rotary Club.

They have begun construction of the holding tank, and expect to hold opening ceremonies on November 15th.

After five days of drilling at B'Dor the drill hit very hard rock and poor water, so we had to abandon that hole. The crew chose a new location close by to drill, and they have been drilling at that location for three days now.

The new location is actually in a village called B'Co, which is very close to the original drilling spot in B'Dor. The new location is outside of the local school, which is ideal.

The crew feels good about this new location and expects to have good water in a day or two. If that is so, then we should have opening day sometime around November 15th.

We encountered hard rock and bad water, so we had to abandon the original drill site and move the drill rig into a new area near by another village called B'Co. The drilling is going smoothly here and the crew anticipates hitting good water soon.

October 29, 2004
We have been drilling 24 hours a day and the drill is approximately 70 meters deep at this time. We anticipate hitting good water very soon, and we expect to complete the well and holding tank sometime around November 12, 2004.

The Care to Help Project began drilling a safe water well project for B'Dor in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. B'Dor is approximately 80 miles south of Da Lat, and a 100 miles NE of Ho Chi Minh City. There are over 2000 minority tribes people at this village, and they had no safe water source up until this time. This well project, which is being sponsored by the Bellevue Rotary Club, will be drilling a deep groundwater well to provide the village with a safe source of drinking, cooking, and bathing water.
