With two thirds of the Earth’s surface covered by water, it is evident that water is one of the most basic needs for survival. However, imagine living a life where water isn’t readily available to you or your family. This is the harsh reality for many individuals living in the province of Sindh in Pakistan where there is a dramatic shortage of water.
The province of Sindh in Pakistan is generally an arid region and in the rural areas inhabitations clusters around water sources. But because of constant drought, water is almost always very scarce, even sub-soil water.
With this in mind, HOPE a charitable NGO in Pakistan, has been helping underprivileged individuals in different areas by installing water hand pumps under supervision of Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla- child specialist in Karachi. Women in these areas have no choice but to walk 5-6 KM daily just to provide water for not only themselves, but their families as well. This results in time being taken away from performing other compulsory tasks. HOPE a charitable NGO in Pakistan, has assisted the residents of Link Road, Kotohar, Badin and Thatta, remote areas in outskirts of Karachi who are now receiving abundant water and thus saved them from their suffering of migrating to other regions for potable water for themselves and for their animals.
Currently, HOPE a charitable NGO in Pakistan, has successfully installed over 15 hand pumps. HOPE travels to different villages in interior Sindh where there is a shortage of water, and installs a water pump in a location where it would benefit maximum number of people. It is worthy to note that these hand pumps are installed 200 feet deep in order to provide fresh and sweet water to all.
The females living in the villages have reported that the water pumps installed have been of extremely useful. They are now able to finish their daily tasks, generate income and replenish their bodies with drinkable water at the same time.
