Pumping life – the miracle of water

This is a film about how the charitable Association for the Development Of Pakistan (ADP) provided clean water in Charsadda District. Throughout the district, more than 79,000 people were directly affected by the floods of 2010. The destruction of infrastructure left many of these villagers displaced , living in government schools, tents or with host families.

The roads leading to these villages were completely flooded with water making it impossible to transport drinking water. ADP installed 12 water hand-pumps throughout these villages and, along with partners, provided blankets, mats for sleeping, pillows, hygiene kits and small water coolers.

Within these villages, community groups of 3-5 members were formed to supervise the maintenance of the pumps, and the success of the project depended on the ability of the community to self-regulate the use and care of the pumps.
