Clean water in rural India
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
Access to safe water and sanitation remains a constant and urgent problem in India. Today, at least half of its population is affected by water shortages.
Shortages are mainly due to inaccessibility rather than scarcity. Many families walk up to five hours a day simply to collect water. Even then, the water they secure is neither clean nor safe to drink.
Mehiel Foundation is working towards achieving the Clean Water & Sanitation Sustainable Development Goal 6 by providing and installing water pumps in rural India.
How you can help
Amid the rising population and climate change, the availability of fresh water is becoming worrisome in South Asia, particularly in India, which may face absolute water scarcity by 2040.
Our water pumps can alleviate the crisis one family at the time but we need your help.
Every pump, together with installation and servicing costs us £170.
Your kind donations could help us reach more families in this time of need.
