Here, at Butterfly Dreamer Network, we make dreams come true. We fight for our society and for a better world. Our intern, Shaheera Pesnani, raised a petition through Greenpeace International, regarding the sewerage issue in Pakistan! As John F. Kennedy said, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
The biggest environmental concern faced by Pakistan is climate change. Pakistan is vulnerable to the effects of climate change – the melting of glaciers; recurring heatwaves; flooding; inconsistent and irregular rains are all the works of climate change. However, that is still an issue that the entire country is facing, especially at a local level, in Karachi, one of the most polluted cities of Pakistan.
This is really important because due to this very problem, many cases of diarrhoea, typhoid and malaria are registered. Also, in slum areas where sewerage issue is the greatest, many of the people cannot even afford to pay for healthcare if diagnosed with malaria, typhoid or other diseases.
Often the sewerage water gets mixed with the water supply line which becomes a cause of death for many people due to contaminated water.
We would like to invite you to read more about this problem and if you consider you would like to help, sign the petition !
