Water for Life Projects Flood Update

Over 5.5 million people have no access to safe drinking water.

In the recent flood-affected areas, safe drinking water is now a priority due to the destruction of many village water pumps and water wells.

Ehsaas donors have provided local communities with over 6,066 Water Pumps and 147 Water Wells over the last few years.

There is an urgent requirement to provide more new water pumps and water wells as soon as possible and, to repair many of the water pumps and water wells that have already been provided by our donors. If you have installed a water facility with Ehsaas, please contact us for an update and if any repairs are required – which you may want to help with.

Ehsaas is on the ground in Balochistan and Sindh and is evaluating its water pumps and water wells and where new ones are required, and is still helping as many families as possible with Emergency Flood Aid.

Provide clean water to the poor

Ehsaas is now installing Water Coolers in Mosques, Schools & Hospitals.

With your generous support, we have also provided clean and safe drinking water for thousands of families in Pakistan who cannot afford it due to their financial situation. Hundreds of water-holes and hand pumps have been installed, mainly in the centre of villages, to ensure that more families have access and can benefit from these hand pumps.

Ehsaas has installed 20 Water Coolers, 6,066 Water Pumps and 147 Water Wells to date – Thank You.

Safe water supplies, hygienic sanitation and good water management are fundamental to global health. In addition, 5 million people can be protected from being seriously incapacitated from lymphatic filariasis and another 5 million from trachoma.

Water-borne diseases are rampant in many economically depressed rural areas of Pakistan because clean running water is simply not available.

Almost a tenth of global disease can be prevented by:

  • increasing access to safe drinking water
  • improving sanitation and hygiene and
  • water management to reduce risks of water-borne infectious diseases

Annually, safer water can prevent:

  • 1.4 million child deaths from diarrhoea
  • 860,000 child deaths from malnutrition and
  • 280,000 deaths from drowning.
