Preventing Disease: Turkish charity donates 22 wells to Pakistan


Date posted: November 11, 2012

Turkish charity Kimse Yok Mu – that translates to “is anybody there?” – has dug 22 wells in Pakistan to help people meet their needs for better access to water.

Droughts, a lack of infrastructure and internal conflict have made many sources for clean water inaccessible in various parts of the country. The charity has dug 11 new wells in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), 10 wells in Balochistan and one in Punjab, providing access to drinking water for 50,000 people.
According to Kimse Yok Mu, water sources are contaminated because animals and people often share the same water, leading to the spread of disease. The organisation is planning to provide more wells to people in around 200 settlements where animals and people share water.
