Response USA is implementing Water Supply Project in Thatta district of Sindh province in Pakistan where around 75% people live in poverty and only 13% use tap water. Every day, women and girls in the rural areas have to walk hours under the scorching heat to fetch water fort their families. The majority of the schools have no toilets or facility for drinking water. In addition, tens of thousands of acres of land in Thatta have been eroded by the sea, which is also severely affecting the ground water aquifers. In many areas of the district, the erosion has rendered agricultural lands useless by making them saline and turning the water sources brackish.
