The statistics are devastating. 16 million people in Pakistan don’t have access to safe water. 68 million people don’t have access to adequate sanitation in Pakistan. This is close to half of the population.
Lack of access to clean water leads the way for countless diseases to claim the lives of thousands of people every year. The large majority of the victims of these diseases are woman and young children.
Over 41,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation in Pakistan.
We have chosen to tackle this problem by taking a long term forward thinking approach. Rather than simply digging small wells that would help a small number of families in the short term, we want to help as many people as possible for as long as possible.
Therefore we decided the best approach was to build large fully equipped water filtration units that can provide access to 2000 gallons of clean water an hour to thousands of people and for many generations to come.
Each unit is built using the latest imported American technology and are fully equipped with the latest American imported membranes and machinery and are designed for longevity.
To Date we have built 12 filtration plants across different areas in Pakistan. The plans were built in densely populated areas and also in in such places that they are accessible to 30 government schools and 10 other government institutes including DHQ Hospital Jhelum to benefit from them.
The cost of building one complete unit is around £5500
The result is thousands of people having access to clean water for many years to come.
