Un­solved wa­ter scarcity

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - FA­TIMA AS­LAM

We all are liv­ing in a coun­try which is suf­fer­ing from count­less prob­lems in which rar­ity of clean drink­ing wa­ter is a ma­jor one. Daily lives of cit­i­zens are spoiled with power break­downs, ris­ing prices of ba­sic ne­ces­si­ties, lack of wa­ter and what not. But it is a shame to see that this se­ri­ous wa­ter cri­sis has wrig­gled into hos­pi­tals and clin­ics as well, an­noy­ing pa­tients and staff at the hos­pi­tals. In fact the Karachi Wa­ter and Sew­er­age Board (KWSB) has paid no at­ten­tion to con­nect the wa­ter sup­ply line of a ser­vice hos­pi­tal in the city.

Num­bers of cit­i­zens were fad­ing due to this ex­tremely in­creased wa­ter cri­sis. So it is re­quested to the KWSB to pay head to­wards the is­sue and bring much needed re­lief to those suf­fer­ing pa­tients and cit­i­zens. —Karachi
