Examples of our Work

Faisalabad is the third biggest city of Pakistan with 2.5 million population, The numerous slums and squatter settlements around the city are a problem to access & clean water for drinking and sanitation services. Hasanpura, which is a typical low-income housing area of 1,000 households, there is no municipal provision for water supply and sanitation and the residents of Hasanpura pay heavily for the purchase of water and solid waste collection. The Poor drinking water has led to chronic gastric, skin diseases. Another major problem is The Open Drains seeped into foundation of houses, and polluting the underground water. Moreover 95% houses have been damaged due to improper sanitation and unhealthy water system.
