Pakistan is on its way to become a water deficient country as it already stands at 30th position among the most water-deficient countries of the world. Safe drinking water is one of Pakistan’s most immediate and crucial problems that demands earliest actions to be taken for its resolution.
Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan is practically active to ensure the provision of clean drinking water by installing hand-pumps in arid lands, drilling water-wells in remote water-scarce areas, installing water-filtration plants in cities, and supplying water to homes in villages through its water schemes. Alkhidmat Clean Water Program takes every possible measure according to the needs of the water-scarce regions to implement its mission.
Small Hand Pump
In remote areas of Pakistan, most of the people mainly rely on open water which is contaminated and unhygienic. This practice results in the spread of disease such as cholera, typhoid and dysentery. In flat fertile areas small hand pumps are ideal source to get clean drinking water for households. Moreover, suction hand pumps are cheap, easy to install and maintain.
Small Hand Pump is a conventional lever action hand pump. It is designed for serving communities of up to 150 individuals. These hand pumps are fully corrosion resistant, easy to install and has excellent potential for community-based maintenance.
