A large population is at risk in Kishanganj district, located in the north-east of the state of Bihar, due to water-borne diseases.
Residents of the Pothia village are dependent on wells, and tubewells, however, the water is not safe for drinking as the presence of iron and fluoride concentration is exceeding the permissible level in drinking water.
Community Correspondent Shah Faisal reports from Kishanganj Bihar for Video Volunteers.
The ‘Heff Khuri’ village of Shopian, Kashmir Valley is a microcosm of the water shortage issues the whole Kashmir is facing now. The villagers over there are dependent on smaller streams for a long time now, for their drinking water.
