Clean Drink Water [/fusion_text][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Water is a basic human need and the right to have access to clean drinking water is a basic human right. Millions of people in Pakistan have little or no access to water and are subject to poor sanitary conditions. SKMF aims to provide deprived communities with clean water sources and sanitation facilities in order to reduce the spread of disease. SKMF has set up water filtration plants in densely populated areas in Orangi, Gulistan-e-Jauhar and Mahmoodabad. Water wells have been rehabilitated in water-starved areas of Tharparkar to help local communities. This project aims to relieve women and children of walking long distances to collect water, freeing their time up to allow them to attend school. Availability of water will enable families to carry out micro agricultural practices at home and sustain livestock where possible. A water filtration plant has also been set-up in the Quaideen Campus and it is providing more than 250 gallons of clean drinking water for the students and their families.

Did You Know?

  • In Pakistan water related diseases cause nearly 60 per cent of child mortality cases
  • More than 780 million┬ápeople around the world do not have access to safe drinking water
  • 72% of the urban population had access to improved sanitation facilities. In rural areas, the number was just 34%, bringing the country average to 47%

WHY?

Pakistan has an underdeveloped infrastructure and ineffective sanitation facilities. Millions have little or no access to clean water and often the same water that is used for defecation is being used for cooking and drinking purposes. This results in an increase in waterborne illnesses such as typhoid, dysentery and Hepatitis C.

In rural areas, there is limited availability of water for great distances and residents have to make long journeys on foot to obtain and collect water. This chore is usually for women and children who spend hours hauling water. If families are provided with pumps, it will enable women to undertake other useful chores and children will be able to attend school.
