Water for Life Project
North Bangladesh Displaced Population Camps (DPCs)
The principal cause of disease among the DPCs residents is a severe shortage of clean water. This unfortunate fact also contributes to the relatively high infant mortality rate.
Funds are needed on an ongoing basis to set up deep water pumps to service over 22 DPCs in north Bangladesh. The cost of each water pump is $385 on average, though it can vary depending on the depth of the clean water source. Hand pumps also need repairs and parts replacement. You may donate for one well or make smaller donations that will cover cost of repairing hand pumps.
