Sachin Tendulkar to Fight against Water Borne Diseases


Sachin Tendulkar, on July 24th, came out with an initiative to hit water borne diseases for a six, with the help of Livpure Foundation.The initiative, named 'Shuddh Pani, Swastha Bhatat' has been undertaken, in order to ensure quality water supply across the nation, as unhygienic water is one of the main carriers of many diseases. The main people who are affected by impure water are children who are below the age of five years.

There are many diseases associated with unclean water among them the most severe are cholera, E. coli infection, dysentery, typhoid, polio, and hepatitis A. Most of these are bacterial infections, with the exception of hepatitis A, which is a viral infection. These diseases have a number of symptoms, and are generally found in children on or below the age of five. Tendulkar, came together with our Livpure Foundation, to campaign against the use of impure water, especially in rural India. We plan to invest 3 crores every year for the next six years. With this initiative, we hope to reach out to at least 10 percent of the population of India.
