Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

MEHD’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) initiative, where we recognize the fundamental importance of access to clean water and proper sanitation for communities, particularly for those most vulnerable to water-borne diseases.

In Pakistan, the scarcity of safe drinking water is a pressing concern, exacerbated by widespread contamination of water sources. Many communities lack access to biologically and chemically treated water, posing significant health risks. Despite commendable progress in improving access to clean water, decent toilets, and hygiene practices, millions of Pakistanis still face the daily challenge of accessing clean water and adequate sanitation facilities.
