Water is a basic necessity. In many rural areas of Sindh there is no access to clean drinking water or even water as such. Women have to walk miles and miles to get water for drinking and other purposes. HOPE has initiated setting up of handpumps in far off remote areas. These handpumps go down to a depth of 250 feet or even more. This has been supported by HOPEUSA donors (Aqua Project), donors from Dubai and Pakistan. This is a form of Sadqa Jariya and supplies the essential need of water. The water is used for drinking purposes as well as other daily life necessities. The hand pumps have been installed in Thatta, Badin, Sakro, Dhabeji, Kathore, Link Road as well as Tharparker. Overall 51 handpumps have been installed by HOPE.
