BACKGROUND ABOUT THE WATER NEED IN BALUCHISTAN
Water is essential for every living being in this world and it is primary need for every life. Everyone that exists in this world can never deny this fact that the water is consent gift by the God which keeping activated process of routines on this earth. When we think about Baluchistan province, various perceptions, conspiracies and other hesitating thoughts surround and force us to keep distance from this region. While the province is passing from dismissal state of affairs and its residents are suffering from various issues like lack of education, health, livelihood and terrorism but the thrust of the land of Baluchistan is hazardous which consumes hundreds lives every year. Draught Spells in majority part of the province continues for decades in which the population migrates far from their home to the water existing regions and occasionally their journey led them to the warm waters of Sindh and Punjab provinces, where from majority of families seek their Jobs and can never returns to their homes, forever. This is cruel fact that the Thousands Acers of Gold Spiting land in the province is barren, which can be moderated for crops with advance techniques and building small and large dames at on way of rain pendent rivers. Unfortunately this is the prime responsibility of the government of Pakistan to relocate the possible strategies and it shall provide necessary strategies to protect rain water and improve agriculture aspects of the local communities in the province; however the politicians of our country are not sincere with this country and with this nation to secure nations future and fight for national cause.
The Thrust of Baluchistan is not only for land and its crop but also the people and other living animals are also suffering from this cruel issue. It is estimated that hundreds of people and their pet animals like goats, buffalos, sheep’s, horses, camels, donkeys and other animals that are the prime assets of their livelihood die every year due to unavailability of Drinking Water. A low quantity of urban and rural population has access to water supply and drinking water facilities but it is extremely contaminated and prone to stomach diseases. Quetta which is the capital city of the province has only 5 percent access to water supply channels and rest of 95 percent population buy water from tankers for their home chores. As well as Gwadar city is the gateway of the economic corridor of china and Pakistan but its 99% of the local population has no access to drinking water and they are force to buy water from Karachi and other cities.
District Sohbatpur in Baluchistan sits at the east side of Baluchistan province and is situated at the border with Sindh province. People are fetching water from open ponds and ground wells from its surroundings; women generally spend their half of a day for fetching water from miles away, leaving behind their education and other important home chores. The Open Ponds, Water Canal and Well are the main source of drinking water.Currently the women from this community walk on an average 3.1 kilometers to retrieve water for daily domestic needs from a nearby pond. Muslim Charity has this objective to drill new well in the lying area about few meters from the village. As well as complete Solar system, water tank and Tapstands with faucets would be located and adjacent to the tank. It is believed that the community itself owns all of the land across which the distribution pipes would be installed.
