World Water Day


March 22, 2020 4 Comments

 

Today is World Water Day and with the ongoing #CoronaCrisis water, in Bangladesh, is not something that you can take for granted.

Bangladesh, one of the most densely populated nations of the world, has an abundance of water sources yet the majority of them are constantly being contaminated.

Both surface water and groundwater sources are debased with various contaminants like poisonous metals and coliforms which are bacteria that are present in soil and plant material and found in the wastes of the digestive tracts of animals and humans.

As a large portion of the population utilises these water sources, particularly groundwater sources which contain an elevated measure of arsenic, the well-being of the population is of much concern, especially those living in extreme poverty.

According to WHO Every year there are more than 3.4 million deaths from waterborne diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world. What's worse is that most of those deaths are young children, about 4,000 a day.

In the past, the prevalence of water borne diseases from drinking sources was never recorded.  With the majority of our mothers and their children coming from the poorest areas of Bangladesh, we take this issue seriously and implement measures that will keep our vulnerable mothers and their children safe.

We annually clearly our water tank and test our drinking water four times a-day, all of which costs 88,000 Taka, which is approximately £890.

Water is essential for staying healthy but that water has to be safe. With your continued donations we are able to ensure more than 300 women and over 100 children are protected by providing them with safe water

“My man used to beat me with whatever he could find around him. One day he broke my hand and acted like nothing had happened. My mother in law said that I don’t need any medical attention as I was not bleeding. But it hurt! It hurt really badly! And this made no difference to my husband.” Ayesha said while pointing to her left wrist.

While our mothers participate daily in various livelihood training programmes, their children go to our school inside our project. Hailing from some of the poorest regions of Bangladesh, these young children have witnessed family trauma and pain and therefore are extremely vulnerable. We are blessed to have such kind and caring teachers who take extra care of our children.
