Pump it up: Solar-powered network delivers water to refugees’ doors
Getting a glass of water for your child shouldn’t be difficult. But here in the world’s largest refugee camp in southern Bangladesh that is home to almost 1 million Rohingya, parents struggle daily to have enough clean water for their children to drink and for other basic needs. A new innovative solar-powered water network installed by World Vision is changing that grim reality, providing clean drinkable water to 5,000 refugees daily in Camp 15 and in neighbouring host communities.
