Safe drinking water is one of the basic requirements of healthy and hygienic living. Non-availability of safe drinking water leads to many waterborne diseases, in particular, those that affect the mother and child's health. According to official survey reports, 79% water samples collected from rural areas of 12 Districts in the province of Punjab were found to be unsafe for human consumption, while 88% water samples collected from rural areas of 21 Districts of the province were also found to be unsafe. Not surprisingly, then, mortality due to water borne diseases is very high.
