Kashmir Case Study

With soaring temperatures and near-constant power shortages, water is a luxury scarce to the people of Kashmir in India.

Farmland cultivation, an industry that employs more people in the state than any other, has almost ground to a halt, after authorities instructed farmers not to plant paddy fields this year due to the massive water scarcity that has nearly crippled the region.

Villagers have to travel almost ten miles to fetch water for daily household chores, and many still depend on natural water reserves such as rivers, which are fast drying up.

The future looks bleak for these poor villagers, with the problem showing no signs of letting up.

You can help save lives by building a well.

For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them, but there is simply no other choice.

Help build a Thirst Relief well and you can give families reliable access to safe, clean water. This allows them to drink, wash, make wudu, grow crops and water their animals safely. It will mean they don’t have to spend hours fetching water each day, freeing up time to go to school, work or look after their families. It will mean children will be able to play and learn and do all the things that a healthy young mind should, rather than the bleak prospects they ultimately face right now.

Clean water means healthier lives, improved livelihoods and, ultimately, a route out of poverty and on the road to a better, brighter future.
