100% inhabitants are below poverty line. A donkey is more valuable than this barren land. The annual rainfall is about 100 – 125 mm which comes in a stormy way to form flash floods and they face devastating damages to their feeble muddy houses and cattle.
They live in family groups. The basic service utility is an unknown word with no water, no electricity and no dispensary. Only three Schools starved with teachers, furniture and anything else. 95% of the population never heard of schooling. The child and women are busy working as “water carrier” in the community
Water is inevitable for life, the nature’s most precious gift to all living beings. But here the only major task left is to strive for water and water. The “Lotus” is so starved! The females and children are forced to go daily for fetching water from dawn to dusk all year, roving daily about 20-25 km , whether to face hot sand or freezing wind biting their faces and feet, the real index of calamities and miseries. Yet the water brought is 0.0% pure and full of contaminations. Hence diseases are their permanent fate.
Disease rate is 95% mostly of stomach, kidneys and lungs. When the survey team reached there one of the old women was dying as her appendix had been burst. Death rate of children is very high sorrowfully.
It is quite imperative to steer them out of this calamity. This can be done by making some efforts for water facilities near their dwellings. The water is at about 300-400 ft deep, which can be pumped up by powerful turbine-Generator. The cost of installation/maintenance is of the tune of Rs. 1.5 million (25000$ / 12000pounds) per unit. Each village will need one such plant. It will be unthinkable and unthinkable gift for them.
They are looking for Moses to come forward with the bouquet of indescribable happiness. As it is not their fault to get birth at such a place just to be a “Thirsty Lotus” needing water. It means life and everlasting life for those who bestow lives to these needy ones. May God give us the strength to help those achieving rosy smiles to their faded faces.
Please hurry in the service of mankind and your conscience will give you
Thank you bouquet.
May God bless you and them (amen)
Looking forward to your donations

This report will enhance the situation of targeted area and condition of the lives of that area in your mind. The focus points which are studied are Drinking Water, Health, and Education.
Water is inevitable for life. It is one of the nature's precious gifts to human beings. Human beings can live without food for about two months but they cannot survive without water for more than four days. Besides direct consumption of water at homes and farms, water affects our daily life in many indirect ways and plays an important role in the processing and manufacturing of many essential commodities. Hence its storage, conservation and use should be in such a way that it benefits all in an equitable and efficient manner. Like many other mountainous areas of Pakistan, these considerations are particularly relevant to Rajan Pur district. But the lives of our study areas about 50 Sq Km, facing the vulnerable situation regarding the Drinking water. They fetch the water from the 300 feet deep wells by the donkeys. An average family required 6 to 8 hours to bring and fetch water from the 10km to 12 km away from their homes. Water quality is very poor and contaminated by the different harmful metals and materials. The availability of safe drinking water was 0%
According to 2002 Economic Survey of United Nations, “ Most of the inhabitants of Pakistan are poor and 40% of them live under poverty line, about 70% of its population dwells in villages. About 300,000, young ones are jobless. They have no access to good education ” . The report shows that how much difficulties and troubles have been faced by this poor and suppressed class of the country. Their main occupation is agriculture and its yearly out put cannot meet their daily and basic needs of life. It is worth to note that only 1% landlords hold almost 95% of lands in Pakistan. This unjust division of land further
creates economical problems not only for the poor but also the government does not get the lion ’ s share in this respect. In our study area we found only three schools of primary level. The education rate is 4.8.% in order to 1.7 % at Three class level,1.5% at Fifth level, 0.9% at 8 th class level and 0.7% at Matriculation level. A parent says, if their child goes to schools for education who will be the substitute as the water carrier.
Children in Pakistan face a variety of serious challenges ranging from malnutrition and poor access to education and health facilities. One in ten children does not survive their fifth birthday with the majority of deaths due to diarrhea, pneumonia or vaccine- preventable diseases. Thirty per cent of children are chronically malnourished and lack safe water and household sanitation, especially in rural areas. In our study area health facility was 0%.The 70% peoples were suffering stomach diseases and 20 % were suffering cough and fever.5% are permanent patient
In context with the general awareness only 0.9% peoples heard about the Iodine. while the 0.01% heard about the HIV/AIDS.
