Water Crisis in Summer Disappeared

Door to door water supply
Door to door water supply

Water is a natural resource but safe drinking water is precious for the coastal areas. Safe water service has to be paid for.In Sundarbans coastal region of Bangladesh, saline water is everywhere with limited fresh water sources. The coastal people have to depend on rainwater. They store water in plastic tank and traditional mud made pots in the monsoon which goes run short by two or three months.

Initiative:Bangladesh Environment and Development Society has been trying to solve safe drinking water for the climate vulnerable underprivileged Sundarbans coastal community since 2015. In this purpose, we have re-excavated 3 ponds and established Solar Pond Sand and filter system. BEDS has installed 3 Reverse Osmosis water purification systems with Water ATM at Dacope and Shyamnagor sub-district. 43 water wells have also been installed. So, more than 55,000 coastal villagers are getting safe drinking water from our service.

Impact: As a result, the 68% people of Sundarbans Coastal area are now getting access to pure drinking water. But this is not sufficient for the large coastal community. Now we are trying to ensure safe drinking water to 100% people of Sundarbans coastal area. Now water contaminated diseases like cholera, dysentery, jaundice etc. are ‍about to disappear from the supported villages.

Feedbacks from the beneficiaries:This is Dhali, I live in Purbo Dhangmari. I earn my livelihood by catching fish and crab from the Sundarbans Mangrove Forest. I go to forest for about seven days to catch fish. Most of the time I used pond water and suffered from various kind of water contaminated diseases. But now BEDS has installed RO water purification system at Purbo Dhangmari and I get relax from the water contaminated diseases.

We would like to thank all our donors for their amazing and continuous support for the coastal deprived people. We are requesting all our donors to start monthly recurring donation by clicking the following link;
