Improving community access to clean sources of water reduces risks to health through waterborne disease, creating time for education and other productive activities. Rankut, situated in Cox’s Bazar - Bangladesh, hosting a community of 35 households and 172 school students, is one such are that had been blighted by poor access to clean water.
With local access to a clean water supply being scarce, people in the area were forced to bring water in from further away. This was both time consuming and a large expense for the community.
Thanks to your donations, Human Relief Foundation has been able to transform the lives of the community by installing a new Deep Tube Well by the local High School, reaching down 800ft to provide a reliable source of safe, clean water for drinking, cooking and sanitary purposes. In addition, the new well is an active water source for irrigating community gardens, providing locals a source of sustainable fresh food.
