Banno’s water story
Banno, a mother of five and main carer for her bedridden husband, lives in Bhanani Bheel village in Tharparkar, Pakistan, where WaterAid and local partners have installed a solar-powered reverse osmosis plant. “People in this area have spent most of their lives digging and searching for sweet water wells.
We had no idea such plentiful water would be available in front of us,” she said. “Before the reverse-osmosis plant, I had to travel miles on my donkey to fetch water from wells to quench the thirst of my family... It would take two to four hours to get water.”
