    Description
    Description

    According to UNICEF 2.2 billion people around the World still lack access to clean drinking water and about half of global population still lack access to clean and safe sanitation. Having access to safe water and clean sanitation facilities not only is the basic human right but is essential for protecting most vulnerable communities especially poor and needy in the remote areas from water related illnesses and infectious diseases. According to World Health Organization, contaminated water and poor sanitation facilities are the cause of many diseases such as: cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio. As a result, 829000 people are estimated to die each year from diarrhea and 297000 children are estimated to die each year below age of 5. Can you just imagine every 2 minutes we lose a child due to water-related disease.
     

    Uplift WASH aims to build water wells and clean sanitation facilities to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. Our vision for Uplift WASH program is to reduce morality rate by focusing on providing clean & safe drinking water and sanitation facilities for poor & underprivileged communities. 

    - We worked directly with a family to install tube-well and as result they now have access to clean drinking water. 

    - We provided clean water & food to over 300 families in flood impacted regions.

    - Currently, we are working with a widow with disabled children in Bangladesh to build sanitation facilities with proper privacy and tube-well so they can have access to clean drinking water & safe sanitation. 

    - We are planning to work with local NGO in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India, and etc to build community well & sanitation facility to provide clean water & sanitation to wider audience. 

    - Uplift You helps victims of flooding and natural disasters in underprivileged areas. We helped built homes and provide clean water and sanitation.

    Expected Impact

    Uplift HOME

    Millions of people in South Asia like Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, etc. impacted by one of the worst flooding ever seen. Flood destroyed thousands of homes and caused many lives. Millions became homeless and desperately need our support to rebuild their home. Uplift HOME aims to support the most vulnerable communities, our initial plan is to help rebuild housing for orphans, disabled, elderly, and women.

    Uplift HOME Projects

    - Mr. Mokul and his family were struggling to live in an old 1 bedroom with 5 children specially in winter. He could not move to his new home due to incomplete work and he does not have the fund to complete the work. Uplift HOME donor provided poor elderly, Br. Mokul and his family with woods, tins, muds, and labor costing total project to be about $620 and helped him shift to his new home.

    - Uplift You recently collaborated with CSR Society to re-build 11 mud-brick homes impacted by recent flood for a small village located near Islamabad, Pakistan. It cost Uplift You $1000 to rebuild 11 mud-brick homes for the poor families.

    - Uplift You plan to work with NGO in flood impacted regions to rebuild homes. Our plan is to rebuild 2-5 homes by mid June 2023.
