Water Sanitation And hygiene

Sanitation & Hygiene

Situation Analysis

Pakistan is grappling with a severe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) challenge, affecting millions. A staggering 22 million Pakistanis lack access to clean water sources, while 48 million lack proper sanitation facilities. Contaminated water is a catalyst for health problems, contributing to diseases that cause 40% of child deaths. Open defecation in rural regions remains a concern, with only 37% of rural communities having access to basic sanitation. Though government initiatives are in progress, urban-rural progress disparity persists, accentuating the urgency. Investments in infrastructure, coupled with awareness campaigns, are pivotal. Collaboration involving government, NGOs, and global entities is essential to secure sustainable solutions and a healthier future for Pakistan.

FRDP’s Response

FRDP primarily targets water provision in remote rural areas. Our program integrates hygiene education sessions, empowering communities to prevent diseases through knowledge and practice.

 Solar Powered Water Stations

The solar powered well offers an environmentally friendly solution to water scarcity. In areas, such as Tharparkar, where water is deep (120ft to 300ft), obtaining water is a challenge for women, children, and animals. By using solar energy, this innovation efficiently pumps water from underground to a surface-level tank. Within 4-5 hours, the solar-powered submersible pump refills the tank, ensuring uninterrupted water supply. With minimal maintenance – just occasional solar panel cleaning – and no construction risks, this sustainable solution provides immediate, reliable water access. It has 10-15 years lifespan, and a 15,000-liter surface tank highlight its effectiveness. Notably, the system adheres to environmental standards, underscoring its eco-friendliness. By addressing water scarcity while maintaining an environmentally conscious approach, the solar powered well positively impacts both the community and the planet.

  Deep Wells

Deep wells involve boreholes up to 120ft, fitted with sturdy Indus hand pumps. Boreholes are 5″ in diameter, encased in 4″ PVC pipes.

  Shallow Wells

For shallow or tube wells, boreholes range from 40 to 60ft, utilizing ILL hand pumps (2mm gauge, 5ft length, 2.5″ diameter). Boreholes are 3″ in diameter, with a 1.25″ delivery pipe.

  Water Purification Facilities (RO Plants)

FRDP has successfully established water purification plants utilizing reverse osmosis (RO) technology, spanning various regions of Pakistan, Tharparkar being one of them. These plants operate incessantly, providing impoverished communities with numerous litres of potable and uncontaminated water on a daily basis.
