Approximately 300+ beneficiaries can have water from these pumps in a day. The pumps are installed in isolated areas of interior Sindh such as Shikarpur, Jacobabad, Kashmore & Larkana Districts. Depth of pumps start from 90 to 120 feet.

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.
The only alternative is to install hand pumps or deep wells (drilled wells) to draw clean water from the ground depending on the depth of the water table. The depth of the potable water table varies from 20 to 3000 feet (6 to 910 meters) depending on the region and local topography.
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.
