There is shortage of water in district Badin, Sindh as Goni Wah canal along with other rivers in the district continue to dry up.

Locals have to dig up for water as the water crisis has reached to incomparably low level. Nevertheless, digging up doesn't do much for the locals because the water dries up in a few days, propelling the residents of district Badin to dig for water again.

Even the water which is dug up by the residents is not hygienic and poses health threats to the citizens. But, there is no other way to get access to water for the people of Badin and are locals have to repeatedly drink the muddy water.

Around 50 to 60 villages in Badin are facing shortage of water and residents of those areas are digging 10 feet to find water.  

The Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) has recently issued a severe warning that the country was on track to run out of water by 2025. Moreover, Pakistan has the world’s fourth highest rate of water use.

According to a WHO report, only 36 percent of the Pakistani population on average, including 41 percent in urban areas and 32 percent in rural areas, has access to safe drinking water in the country.
