Access to safe drinking water can transform lives. The gift of a tube well will ensure that up to many villagers have access to clean water for drinking, washing and cooking.In areas of extreme poverty, where access to basic water and hygiene facilities are not readily available. MP Foundation's Hand pump project aims to provide safe clean drinking water to those most in need.
