Sonaimuri, Bangladesh

The MAAWS/IMANA Pure Drinking Water & Sanitation Project has expanded into the village of Barahipur in Sonaimuri, Bangladesh. During flood seasons, the land becomes overtaken by the unsanitary water because of its low elevation. To prevent the spread of waterborne diseases and keep drinking water sanitary and accessible all year long, a series of tubes wells free of arsenic contamination have been installed around the village for local residents.
