Access to clean water is essential for every human being's health. Unfortunately many of Pakistan's underprivileged communities suffer from water borne diseases such as typhoid, E. Coli infections, and cholera due to the lack of access to clean water. Since 2009, HOPE has partnered with Proctor & Gamble to distribute PuR amongst rural and remote communities. PuR is a small sachet produced by P&G which purifies polluted water by eliminating harmful elements from it. Within the first year HOPE launched this campaign (from 2009 to 2010) we distributed 1.2 million sachets of PuR. In our outreach efforts, we teach the importance of consuming clean water along with disease prevention by handwashing and soap.

If you would like to support the construction of a hand pump for villagers in Pakistan, simply donate using the tab below. The cost of a hand pump (including an inscription) is £1,447. You may donate the entire amount yourself or pool together a collection with a group. You may also donate smaller amounts to support general construction efforts. Please keep in mind that our hand pumps are constructed on a first-come first-served basis and that due to the excavation involved, the process can take eight to ten months.
