Dr Muhammad Usman Ghori, the senior research fellow of Huddersfield would be working with the officials of Pakistan for bringing clean, affordable drinking water to the people of South Punjab, as per the reports of local media.
Fresh, clean, drinkable water would be a reality in the country, especially in South Punjab, after the announcement of an international alliance spearheaded by the government of Pakistan, alongside other key stakeholders and led by the University of Huddersfield.
The initiative, headed by the University of Huddersfield senior research fellow would be transforming the water supplies in the region into affordable drinking water for the benefit of the entire population and also would be offering a sustainable option of raw material to make healthcare products.
It is a measure that is much required by a considerable population of Pakistan. As per a recent study, the Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) identified a sizeable portion of the supplied water was not suitable for human usage. The contaminated water was adding to a major number of deaths every year and a large part of the GDP of Pakistan was spent on the health care of the people who suffer from water-borne diseases.
The solution to offer clean water supply is present in a lot of quantity in the region of Koh-e-Suleiman mountain range in the form of a raw nano-clay with properties that could be targeted for a number of health-giving applications.
