Safe Drinking Water

Safe Drinking Water

Water touches every aspect of life, and in India uncertainty over access to and the availability of this basic resource may be reaching crisis levels. The World Health Organization estimates that 97 million Indians lack access to safe water today.

About 21% of communicable diseases in India are related to unsafe water. The government is working on the issue but it cannot resolve this problem alone.

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) too need to pitch in if we want to protect their life and also the economy and growth of the country.

That’s exactly why the Human Welfare Foundation started its The Safe Drinking Water Project.

This gives people living in these rural areas more time, freedom and incentive to help their families grow to be healthy and productive members of the community.

Every year, thousands of hand pumps and wells are being installed to make the life of poor and needy of the country better. After all, water is one of the basic requirements of life. Everyone should get it.
