HA NOI (VNS)— Nearly 1.3 million people in four northern provinces have been provided with clean water thanks to World Bank-funded clean water, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said yesterday.
The US$122 million project, which started in 2005, has already disbursed $107 million. The number of those with water in Hai Duong, Ninh Binh, Nam Dinh and Thai Binh provinces has increased from 22,000 to 313,500.
Nearly 90 per cent of the families now have hygienic toilets and more than 600 public restrooms have been completed. — VNS
