The water crisis is worsening in the district Tharparkar after hundreds of River Osmosis (RO) plants stopped supplying drinking water.

Pak Voices has learnt that the government has not renewed the contract with the water company Pak Oasis which installed more than 500 RO plants in Tharparkar. As a result the operation of hundreds of RO has come to a complete halt.

People are forced to fetch water for drinking from far-flung wells which also have poor water quality.

Pak Voices’ reporter is in the village of Helariopeer which is in the grip of severe water shortage.
