The Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP):
is a yearly fundraising campaign by UNAVSA; this is where many Vietnamese Student Associations across the nation fundraise to give to an annually selected beneficiary. For this year, UNAVSA has selected Foodaid Compassion which is a registered non-profit with efforts to enhance the quality of life of the people of Vietnam. In 2011, Food Aid Compassion established its water filtration project to bring fresh and clean water to the communities in Vietnam. It recognized that a great number of the population does not have access to clean drinking water which causes a serious health hazard and risks of waterborne diseases. The people of greatest risks of poor quality water are infants/young children and the elderly who are debilitated or living under unsanitary conditions. Food Aid Compassion with the assistance of the funds raised by CPP will provide clean drinking water stations of WHO (World Health Organization) standards to communities in Vietnam.
