More than 1,500 children under the age of five have died in the Tharparkar district of Pakistan's Sindh province since 2011. Each year, as the death toll climbs, reports are sought, commissions created and emergency plans announced by the provincial government. But none of these seem able to stop the recurring problems plaguing this vast 20,000sq km district.
According to the report, 80 percent of water in Thar region is salty (brackish) making it unfit for drinking, as per WHO standards.
Access to clean water can transform the lives of entire communities. The gift of a Dig-a-Well can serve up to 200 people, providing access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking, as well as keeping livestock hydrated. On average, these wells serve around 35 families.
Dig-a-Wells are ideal for families who rely on agriculture and farming. The wells have mechanical hand pumps and draw water from up to 40 metres beneath the ground making them dependable during all seasons.
