Non-profit relief organization A Child’s Right installed five water purification systems to orphanages and child welfare centers in China earlier this month with support provided by the Gibson Foundation. The water purification systems provide access to clean water for thousands of children, while also allowing newborns to receive formula made with purified water for the first time.

Many of the children at these orphanages have life-long disabilities, and all of the orphanages have been plagued by severe outbreaks of giardia and dysentery in the last few years. These newly installed water systems will remedy much of that. The five water purification systems were installed in Chongqing, Xiushan, Nanchang, Fuling, and Fencheng.

A Child’s Right is a nonprofit relief organization formed by a collective of concerned professionals wishing to change the current living standards and health of impoverished children the world over.

Although there are several organizations focusing on clean water and hygiene education in developing countries, most do not focus specifically on children, especially those living in urban areas. A Child's Right was established to fill this gap and provide charitable relief for children living in orphanages and street shelters as well as those attending schools and visiting children's hospitals in impoverished urban and semi-urban areas in underdeveloped countries.
