A charitable project on provision of healthy clean water to Revnoye village dwellers has been realized within Ukrainian Fashion Week in Kyiv.
Kyiv, March 22, 2012. For the first time a charitable project on practical solution of the ecological and social problem of Revnoye village has been realized within EuroFashion (Ukrainian Fashion Week special project).
Due to the establishment of the system of water post-treatment in the local school children as well as adults-village dwellers will get the access to clean and safe drinking water.
Revnoye village, Kyiv region (Boryspil district, 25 km from Kyiv) – is one of the “hot” points of Ukraine in terms of the access of its dwellers to safe and healthy drinking water.
According to the results of the analyses the key indicators of the water quality in the local wells are several times higher than the existing standards, even the imperfect Ukrainian standard “Sanpin”. The key water problems: 12 times higher iron level, 34 times higher turbidity level, 6 times higher manganese level, 2 times higher ammonium level. Drinking such water is unhealthy and dangerous.
«Everybody knows about the water problem in our village. We have even created a project to solve it within the state program “Drinking Water”, yet the project has never started», – tells Valentyna Beloshytska, the Head of the local school. The polluted water in the village dwells is one of the most popular themes of the students’ essays.
For the first time a charitable project on practical solution of the ecological and social problem of Revnoye village has been realized within EuroFashion project. Due to the establishment of the system of water post-treatment in the local school children as well as adults-village dwellers will get the access to clean and safe drinking water. From now on it meets both – the existing Ukrainian standard and European quality criteria.
«We always claim that Fashion has a great impact on society. We always stick to this or that social issue within our projects. In terms of the 30th Ukrainian Fashion Week we have been speaking for the first time about the Clean Water Preservation on the Planet. It is really a global problem. And surely we have to speak about it. But the basic here is to undertake practical actions each of us can make everyday. Sometimes mere attention to the culture of water consumption is not enough. We can offer help to those who feel lack of this vital element. Then, spending a little bit of our efforts and ambition, we can make life of concrete people safer and healthier. The project we have realized in Revnoye School is an example of such a concrete help to concrete people”, – states Iryna Danylevska, a Founder and the Head of Ukrainian Fashion Week Organizing Committee.
The used technologies and equipment for water purification of the national company “Ecosoft” is one more reason to be proud of our country. They are highly recognized on the international level, and have also received the Grand-Prix of the independent contest of business and social “green” projects Green Awards Ukraine 2011.
«Due to the realized project water will undergo five-phase filtration. During the first phase the water will be filtered of sand, clay and other similar elements which influence the level of turbidity. During the second phase the water will be purified from extra iron, manganese and ammonium. Then there will be correction of calcium level provoking scale during the cooking process. During the fourth phase water will go through a thick level of activated carbon to eliminate tinges causing unpleasant smell and taste of water. During the final fifth phase water will be neutralized by ultraviolet rays. Thus the purified water will be 100% safe for drinking and cooking and, what is crucial, the natural mineral composition of water is preserved, whereas all the negative and dangerous impurities are extracted. In addition, water neutralization without any chlorine will protect children from harmful microorganisms and chemical compounds”, tells Taras Zabashta, a member of “Ecosoft” Board of Directors, a technical Partner of the Project.
The projects directed to the practical solution of the problem are really precious. The initiators of the Project hope that Revnoye village will become a starting point for the popularization of the experience and that it will be used all over Ukraine.
«Everybody is speaking of ecological problems in Ukraine today. Yet, only few real projects have been realized by now. And the given practical Revnoye project is one of them. The impact of its realization is obvious and important. Such successful projects can be really multiplied providing clean water to more and more children. Such projects can breed healthier generations and this will strengthen the positions of our country”, - says Yulia Berezovska, the executive manager of IBC Centre, a Partner of Charity Project.
