Filter Water Pump
Tharparkar in Pakistan is spread over 22,000 square kilometres with a population of about 1.5 million residing in 2,300 villages and urban settlements. During research in Tharparkar, it was found that while the normal fluoride level in water is supposed to be 1ppm, in many locations it is as high as 13ppm, making it inadequate for human consumption. There are lack of resources for digging and maintaining these installations.
SYF believes that no-one should be deprived of a basic need of survival. More than 840,000 people die every year due to water related diseases. With your donations we will be able to provide clean running water - resulting in thousands of lives being saved and a chance for these individuals to create positive futures for themselves and their families.
In Thar, many families, women and girls fetch water for the family every day from a communal source that is located far away. This takes hours, depriving them of a profitable working time or education. Constant lifting and carrying of heavy water pots cause health problems, particularly among pregnant women.
- Unsafe water is the only water option for most families.
- The social life of villagers is also restricted due to lack of adequate water.
- This especially affects women, who are responsible for carrying water.
- Young children often have to forgo education due to the responsibility of fetching water.
