Globally, millions of people lack access to clean drinking water. The impact of water scarcity is severely affecting the communities, as it can directly affect human health. Access to clean-water changes everything in their lives; it’s a stepping-stone towards good health and social-development.
Availability and quality of drinking water is a huge concern for Pakistan. The country is not only suffering from a severe shortage of drinking water, there is also a growing concern over the quality of drinking water available for domestic use. The situation is further aggravated by heat waves and droughts driven by climate change.
Under our CSR initiative ‘Drinking Water for Khushhali’, KMBL installed water coolers with filters at different schools, hospitals and public places of Multan. The goal behind this initiative is to facilitate access to clean drinking water during the severe heat waves for the people especially elders, children and patients.
Through such initiatives, KMBL is making direct contributions to the Sustainable Development Goal #6, by facilitating equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all, through hand-pumps, filtration plants and water coolers.
