GLOBAL POVERTY CANNOT END UNTIL PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER, HYGIENE FACILITIES AND SANITATION SYSTEMS. THROUGH OUR WATER CHARITY APPEAL, WE AIM TO CHANGE THAT.
Water is an essential necessity needed to sustain life. However, although water may be in plentiful supply for those of us here in the UK, there are many millions of people around the world who simply do not have access to clean, safe drinking water.
Countless men, women and children are stuck in a devastating cycle of poverty where thirst and disease are so commonplace that they have become a part of daily life.
These people spend hours every day walking miles to collect water, which in many cases, is not even clean or safe to use. In these communities, open sewers run past people’s homes, water is scarce, and disease is rife.
At Cheap Trials Carries Welfare Trust, we are continually working with these people to provide basic sanitation systems and access to safe drinking water.
THANKS TO YOUR GENEROSITY, WE CAN TRANSFORM LIVES BY PROVIDING LOCAL COMMUNITIES WITH ACCESS TO FRESH WATER..
Over one billion people living in poverty across the world struggle to access clean, safe water. In addition, dirty water can lead to further health complications and conflict due to the scarcity of water sources.
Each year, 2.75 million people die from water-related diseases. Five children die each minute from water-borne diseases. A staggering 80% of diseases in the developing world are caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.
Many of us are guilty of taking the availability of water for granted, yet for millions of people, accessing this essential resource is one of the most difficult parts of life. Join us as we work to supply clean, safe drinking water to people in need across the world – your donation can help us change lives.
WATER FILTRATION AND PURIFICATION PLANT
Without discrimination, every individual has a human right to sufficient, safe, acceptable, accessible and affordable water and sanitation for personal use. Sadly, the world is still a long way from realising this right for all.
An estimated 2.5 billion people lack improved sanitation facilities, and 768 million people still do not have access to an improved drinking water source.
The following agents can contaminate water:
- Pathogens – disease-causing organisms such as bacteria, amoebas and viruses, as well as the eggs and larvae of parasitic worms
- Damaging chemicals from human activities (industrial waste, pesticide, fertilisers)
- Natural minerals and chemicals, including arsenic, fluorides and common salt. Some non-hazardous contaminants may influence the taste, smell, colour or temperature of water, making it unacceptable to the community
We are installing water filtration and purification plants in different parts of Pakistan; however, our biggest clean water campaign is in Tharparkar, Sindh.
Providing access to clean water in Tharparkar is one of our top priorities as water-related diseases are so common in this area. Currently, locals have no choice but to travel miles to get the clean water they so desperately need.
This plant will help thousands of families access clean drinking water on a daily basis. It will reduce water-related illnesses in children, especially diarrhoea, which occurs worldwide and causes 4% of global deaths and 5% of health loss to disability.
