Global warming and successive droughts has caused severe water scarcity in many regions of Iran. Drinking water shortages, unprecedented high temperatures and now the coronavirus pandemic have put people in a difficult situation. The water situation resulted in many people catching infections by water-borne diseases. The situation worsened with the health care system overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.
In this project, in collaboration with “Range Khoda'' charity organisation, RWB will purchase and install eleven 500-litre water trucks which will provide clean drinking water for 100 families, mainly Afghan immigrant, living in deprived rural areas (worth to note that the total number of water trucks is 17 with seven being purchased by the partner organisation, “Range Khoda” charity).
The drinking water will be collected by the trucks from the distribution system in the villages where freshwater is available for collection every day for 15-30 minutes.
Water is the main essence of life, and its scarcity is a big thread threat for human life and specially for children. In this project, with help of donors, RWB attempts to provide safe drinking water for to the people living in the targeted rural areas.
