Bringing Clean Drinking Water to the people of a remote village near Faisalabad, Pakistan
Sectors (H-12 and I-12) in the capital city of Islamabad and it has been home to more than 5000 refugees for almost 25 years. Initially they relied on municipality pipelines which were also providing water to nearby urban societies of Islamabad which now is forcefully banned by the government for these people due to gradual increase in urban population.
The supply of water, they primarily rely on three hand-operated wells and a borehole.
Underground water table is polluted with fecal contamination and is unfit for drinking purposes
Poor hygiene practices, filthy jerrycans and containers and dirty ambiance
Shallow depth the water from the wells carries a high amount of particulate matter
90% of the settlement lack access to electricity
So, the wells and the borehole are operated mechanically
Leading to shortage in the supply of water to cater to needs of 5000 refugees
Water contaminated with bacteria and pathogens is causing water born illnesses such as Diarrhea, Cholera, Dysentery, and Typhoid
Due to the presence of particulate matter cases of kidney stones especially in the children of ages 1-12 have also been reported
