Just Not a Hand Pump... it is Basic Rights

In various hand pumps were installed in Taluka Matli and Talhar– Sindh. In this region there was a serious issue regarding the availability of drinking water. The habitats in these regions had several diseases caused by the pollution of ponds and streams. This meant that the water that was available to drink was also polluted. The population of this area were also struggling with financial burdens of purchasing water, as well as the physical burden of fetching drinking water from distant areas. 
 
Now, 1116 families will benefit from the 20 hand pumps installed, providing fresh, clean drinking water. At five locations there was a need to stretch canal pipes from nearby areas because of the lack of underground drinking water availability.
