Drinking water project

Almost 60% of people in Afghanistan do not have access to clean drinking water. Statistical analysis shows that the introduction of sufficient clean drinking water into an area results in a 35% reduction in severe diarrhoeal morbidity thereby saving many lives and improving the health of the people in the area. Local water sources (including ice) are heavily contaminated with pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Lack of clean drinking water results in Hepatitis A and E, Cholera, and Typhoid Fever. Each well helps hundreds of people. Make a donation today and save lives.
