On 11th December 2015, Lha Charitable Trust installed its 22nd water filtration system at Tibetan Children’s Village School Gopalpur, as a part of the Lha’s Clean Water Project which was funded by Apocolypse Krew, Louisiana, USA.
SOS Tibetan Children’s Village at Gopalpur formally became operational in 1997. Spread over a thirty-acre estate in lush green environment with a majestic mountain backdrop, it is now home for the many children coming across the border. Currently there are 1271 children and 137 staff.
The water purification system is an RO+UV+ UF and TTS, and is considered one of the best systems available in the area. It will provide more than one hundred liters of safe drinking water per hour to the school children and the staff. The filtration system includes a stainless steel tank with holding capacity of five hundred litters of water.
We hope that this water purification system will help to alleviate major waterborne illnesses that residents commonly suffer from in this region, especially during the monsoon season. We believe that this will contribute to maintaining a high level of general health among the students and the staff.
So far around 12,358 people have benefited from the Lha Clean Water Project and we will be installing more such systems in the future.
