Barely 15 days old, Kinza whimpers at an Islamabad hospital where she is suffering from diarrhea and a blood infection, a tiny victim among thousands afflicted by Pakistan’s severely polluted and decreasing water supplies.

Friends of Education and Masomeen Welfare Trust recognize the fact that water available to Korangi, Orangi, and related area is contaminated. In order to make corrective action we send the water to AKUH Labs and found that the water is contaminated with fecal matter, the concentration of contamination varies from area to area. Normally water should not contain more than 500colony counts but most of the water tested has count ranging from 800 to 5700 highly contaminated and not recommended for human consumption.
We installed our 1st Reverse Osmosis plant in Awami Colony Korangi Industrial Zone which provides water to more than 100 families daily FREE OF COST. An international NGO – Lady Fatima Charitable Trust came forward and helped us. With the help of LFCT and Savior, a US-based NGO facilitated FOE to install further plants in Karachi, Khairpur and other places.
Khairpur – Water Plant
In Khairpur the water system was pathetic and extremely polluted for human consumption but unfortunately, they didn’t have a choice and were forced to drink it. Today we made Adham Sultan a model village with Clean water, Solar plant to provide electricity to the school, a praying area and helped hundreds of local inhabitants from germ related diseases. MWT & LFCT also helped in establishing the school providing educating many uneducated and underprivileged children who have never been to school before. FOE also provide free lunch to students based on Nutritionist recommendation.
