Water Purification Machine Fund
Dow companies have donated and installed 80 water purification machines in Rayong communities, which has enabled villages to operate and maintain these machines on their own and manage the income to benefit the community as a whole in a sustainable way. In additional, the company has set aside a budget for the maintenance of these water purification machines to ensure that the communities will always have clean drinking water.
