NADI FILTER DISTRIBUTION
Project Reporting Period: Jan-March  2012

Report

The Water Filters were constructed in the flood affected village of lower sindh, Malti, Pakistan. Almost 123 families benefitted from these water purifying Nadi filters.

The number of households using Nadi filters in the flood effected villages of lower Sindh in year 2012 will be increased by 10,000, during which 123 Nadi filters have already been constructed and successfully running  in Malti area. We have actually set a goal above this, which is to try to get 12,000 Nadi filters into different villages by the end of year 2013.

The household members were very happy with Nadi filters and they told us how much difference it has already created in their lives. After we completed the construction for the 123 Nadi filters we called the beneficiaries using the rural committee members and asked them about their experience of Nadi filter so far.

Mrs. Shafique says, “ Me and my children were suffering from many diseases like diherea and other stomatch problems due to contaminates water usage, we are poor people who cant afford filter and other purifying material, AHD by bringing this household simple Nadi filter which id made of mud and is very easy to use and construct has made our lives easier and much more safer, now I am not worried about my family and specially children health, God bless AHD and your supporters”.

About 5000 families from Oct 2011 to Jan 2012 received medical care, medicine help, patients from all age groups were seen by our doctors through medical amps at village level. Among the seen, patients with skin pathologies were noticeable with diseases such as folliculitis ,impetigo and scabies being their companions for an unknown time. Waterborne diseases  followed next with gastroenteritis ,typhoid fever ,cholera and plain diarrhea toping among this group. Malaria continued to pose a major threat as ever with dengue as its worst and final attack.

Women in general and in their gestational periods presented with iron deficiency anemia and complained of general body weakness and fatigue.

Children mostly presented with discharging ears and otitis, malnutrition and being underweight drew our  maximum attention.
