Kanchan's story

Kanchan Khan and his friends collect water at the new well in Golachipa Upazila in Patuakhali District (Bangladesh). Since a few months, the community has a new deep tube well. Before the well was installed, people from the community used water from the nearby well – an hour walking from the village. This water was often contaminated and the iron level was too high. As a consequence, many people in the community suffered from water related diseases. The village chief says: “The clean water we now have access to contributes to a healthier community. We see many positive changes”
