AAI acts fast to ensure that the children of Hway Ka Loke school have constant access to clean drinking water after wells dry up.

Hway Ka Loke school (HKL) provides shelter, food, education and a safe, community environment for hundreds of ethnic Karen children who have been forced across the border from Burma.

With hundreds of students being housed at the school for most of the year, constant access to safe and clean drinking water is essential for ensuring the health and hygiene of the children.

Recently, when the wells which normally service HKL's water supply suddenly ran dry, AAI was ready to step in and provide much needed assistance.

To make sure water reaches the school, AAI has installed a pumping system, which feeds water from a nearby dam into the school's water access points via a storage tank and filtration system.

The continued generosity of AAI's Australian and international community allows us to rapidly and appropriately respond to the needs of local people in the field.

AAI would like to recognise all those who donate to us. Your generous contributions, both large and small, go into vital projects such as maintaining the Hway Ka Loke School's water supply.
