Water for Life...
Comes down from mountains - the most beautiful of God’s creations, speaks the language understood by all – it is the refresher of the world. Today, one person in five across the world has no access to save drinking water. Every day; more than 30,000 children die worldwide before reaching their fifth birthday, killed either by hunger or by easily preventable disease. Situation in disaster and underdeveloped areas is even worse and will be severe in next 25 years as it is among the areas to be hit hard by water scarcity and flood. Women and children walk almost 5 miles a day for a few liters of drinking water available for the whole family. There are certainly harder facts that are untold or probably cannot be told. We are here to adjust our sails because fresh water is rare. So….
Let’s treat water, let‘s conserve water.
The mortality rate for children under-five in few countries is 101 deaths per 1000 children. Water and sanitation related diseases are responsible for 60% of the total number of child mortality cases in these countries, with diarrheal diseases estimated at killing over 20,000 under-five years' children, every year. The combination of unsafe water consumption and poor hygiene practices causes hardship due to resultant high costing treatments for water borne illnesses, decreased working days, and also contributes to lowering of educational achievement due to reduced school attendance by children. Normally the access to safe water is limited in these areas. The water is collected from rain or river water. This will not remove the dirt, bacteria, parasites and deadly E-coli from the water supply. The risk of major infectious diseases, such as bacterial diarrhea, hepatitis A, typhoid fever, dengue fever, malaria and leptospirosis is high. Due to excess flooding, the open toilets to over flow causing even more disease to flow into their water source.
The KPT (Kontel Purification Trust) for providing safe Drinking Water Project is implemented by My Pain Clinic and Kontel Technologies USA inc. through CBI and its allied partners. The Project will help in providing technical assistance and hardware for safe drinking water. The Project will involve activities in selected areas, including flood and earthquake affected areas of Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia and few African countries.
The overall goal and objectives of the KPT (Kontel Purification Trust) is to provide mobile water purification systems for flood and earthquake affected populations and to prevent them from major infectious diseases. We can also design and built drinking water purification systems for any national and international NGO’s and install at any effected site across any country across the globe.
My Pain Clinic and Kontel jointly announced the launch for a major relief campaign in state fo Georgia USA focused on the “prevention of water-borne disease and illness” among the flood-affected population. Water-borne diseases have become a major threat for people directly affected by the floods. Supplying clean drinking water in bottles often involves logistical complications – hence, KPT has opted for a more practical alternative based on which, a mobile water purification system produced by Kontel for free installation at flood affected population. These systems will be installed in the most severely affected areas. The MD of My Pain Clinic & President of Kontel jointly announced the establishment of a KPT (Kontel Purification Trust) where people can make instant contributions through a telephone call or by authorizing payment through check, wire or credit card.
