Clean water in rural Pakistan

Clean Water & Sanitation

Why it matters

2.2 billion people around the world still lack safely managed drinking water, including 785 million without basic drinking water.

Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a human right.

The demand for water has outpaced population growth, and half the world’s population is already experiencing severe water scarcity at least one month a year.

How we help

Water is essential not only to health, but also to poverty reduction, food security, peace and human rights, ecosystems and education. Nevertheless, countries like Pakistan face growing challenges linked to water scarcity, water pollution, degraded water-related ecosystems and cooperation over transboundary water basins.

Mehiel Foundation is committed to working towards achieving the Clean Water & Sanitation Sustainable Development Goal 6 by providing Biosand water filtering systems to underprivileged families in rural Pakistan.

How you can help

Amid the rising population and climate change, the availability of fresh water is becoming worrisome in South Asia, particularly in Pakistan, which may face absolute water scarcity by 2040.

Our Biosand systems can alleviate the crisis one family at the time but we need your help.

Every filtering system, together with installation and servicing costs us 21,500 rupees or roughly £96.

Your kind donations could help us reach more families in this time of need.
