Providing clean water and sanitation

Children in Sindh, Pakistan, play at a water pump in a village.


The British government is supporting the refurbishment of thousands of water pumps in Sindh, as people return to their communities following the devastating floods which swept across Pakistan in 2010. The floods caused widespread damage to infrastructure across Pakistan, contaminating wells and water supplies. UKaid from the Department for International Development has provided funding to NGOs such as Concern, International Medical Corps, Mercy Corps, Oxfam and Save the Children, to provide clean drinking water, sanitation shelter and healthcare to thousands of families across Pakistan.
