Despite much of the world having access to clean water, an estimated 40% of all deaths in Pakistan are caused by contaminated drinking water. This water contains parasites that lead to infection, disease and in certain cases, death. According to national statistics, around 21 million people in Pakistan don’t have access to the water they need to survive. In certain rural neighbourhoods, around 90% of people don’t have access to clean water. Instead, they drink dirty, contaminated water to survive. Where water is scarce, people may determine that handwashing is not a top priority, increasing the risk of diarrhoea and other infections. Imagine every time you drink, you have to risk your life, It’s not sustainable and causes millions of premature deaths every year.
By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas, according to WHO (World Health Organization). We want to provide communities with access to clean water. We believe it’s a human right to have access to drinking water that won’t harm you. It’s needed for everything from drinking and cooking to cleaning and washing. And yet, millions go without it. To help deliver this change, we’ve built water wells in remote areas and provides clean safe drinking water to vulnerable people. We aim to deliver these to communities that need them the most, ensuring the most impoverished areas receive the water they need to survive.
