Danger! Water! Guest blog by CEF's Australian manager Graeme
There are many ways in which the 35 children a day drown in Viet Nam: in rivers, lakes, the sea, fish ponds, canals, rice fields ... and wells. On a recent visit to minority families I saw this well just waiting for a baby, toddler or child to fall in. And the following day I saw one simple remedy of a cover on the well to reduce this tragic toll.
CEF runs water safety programs to raise awareness of the danger and to drown-proof the children whose schooling their sponsors support.

I am living in Vietnam because I feel I need to really understand Vietnamese people to be able to trully help them in a meaningful and appropriate way. I feel I and many other westerners are arrogant as we generally believe we know what's best for those more challenged and less fortunate; but we don't. There is so much to learn and understand to trully be of service.
