Indus River is the major water source for the more than 180 million persons living in Pakistan, yet fast-growing populations and increasing demand for hydropower and irrigation in Pakistan means the Indus is coming under intense pressure, with serious implications for the health of the population. Rural Pakistanis (more than half of the population) use river water for irrigation, despite the fact that it is unsafe for drinking and a primary source of stunting and diarrhea.
Clean water is a basic necessity but many of the remote and slum areas of Pakistan still lacking from this facility. ForNeedy addresses the need for clean water in slums, villages and demanded communities through the installation of wells and hand pumps.
It is really important to address the immediate needs of the community which the most important is fulfilling their basic needs.
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon Him) said,
“Allah the Exalted and Glorious, will say on the Day of Resurrection, “O son of Adam, I asked you for something to drink but you did not give it to me.”
He will say, “O Lord, how can I give You something to drink when You are the Lord of the worlds?”
