YANGON, Myanmar, 28 August 2007 — “I am not the only one who prefers to drink water from the tap of the blue bucket,” says Ma Eh Wah, a mother of two children who lives in A Pyin The Phyu village in Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. The Happy Family Water System is part of an ongoing project started last year by UNICEF and a local non-governmental organization, the Community Development Association. The project has brought appropriate water purification technology to the household level. A factory in Yangon has produced more than 3,000 ceramic water filters that have been distributed to villages and schools in places such as A Pyin The Phyu, where surface water is used as a major water source.
