The people of these villages are happy and stated that SCA fulfilled their basic need, which is clean drinking water.
“We hadn’t access to clean drinking water and SCA has done a huge humanitarian service for us. We were drinking rainy and dirty water in the past. I don’t have many words to appreciate SCA for their vital services” Said 55 years old tribal elder, Mohammad Amin.
According to the residents, they were bringing water kilometers away through donkeys, and as well as their women who also brought water on their heads.
