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.
