Dear Well Wishers
Children Health & Education Foundation (CHAEF) and the people of Vur City Thatta are grateful to a institution a Multinational Bank for very kind initiative by providing funds for installation of 36 Water Hand Pumps at the Vur City – Thatta
As you know, over a billion people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water, and as well as people have no sanitation facilities. More than two million people die each year from diarrhea, and over six million people are blind as a result of trachoma, a disease strongly related to lack of face washing. Other diseases which are caused by water poverty include scabies, typhoid and malaria. The need for clean water to prevent the spread of these and other diseases is therefore paramount. This is one of the greatest problems humanity faces. It is a problem which is taking place under the auspices of the state sector. Population gets its water from state-run services. Government provision in water has overseen millions of deaths through poor quality and lack of sanitation.
The installation of 36 water hand pumps at Vur City – Thatta has been completed and we have successfully installed 36 water hand pumps, which are providing fresh and clean water to the thousand of poor people of the area.
During the course of survey and installation of water hand pumps, we have found some villages in the radius of Haleji Lake near Thatta. The people of these villages came to us and requested that we should save their life, when they will go to Haleji Lake to fetch the water for their families. There were so many Crocodiles who often swoop and killed the women and children (the attached photographs shows an old man as he was the luckily survivors from the crocodile.
There are two solutions of this:
a) To layout water pipeline at the radius of 10 Kilometers
b) To install hand pumps at the area but the water available approximately 300 feet below the ground as the area consist of mountains.
We request you to kindly approve Rs. 250,000/- for each pump making two and Half million rupees (2,500,000) to save the life of the poor villagers and they may live without fear.
