Indian Administered Kashmir, a forgotten conflict with more than 214,000 orphans, 66% without clean and safe water, only 65% literacy rate and tens of thousands of widows, half widows and elderly people with no care or support. With one military personnel for every eight civilians in the Kashmir Valley, it is the most densely militarised zone in the world, with nearly 50% of the population facing mental distress and trauma, according to a leading Indian newspaper.

£800 Community Well

Two-thirds of the population have little or no access to clean and safe water while the rest have had to find their own alternatives. The terrain of Kashmir is very mixed with many villages and towns living in far flung locations where transportation is limited. 

With your support and donations, we can install a community well, where the water is too deep for a hand pump. Supplying clean drinking water to 20 familes and their animals.

If you are unable to cover the costs of a community well, you can contribute any amount towards the cost and we will combine your donation with other donors to ensure the community well is installed.

If you would like a name plaque on your community well, please email so we can make arrangements.
