Sachin Tendulkar launches 'ShuddhPaaniSwastha Bharat' with Livpure Foundation


"According to National Healthcare Survey 2013, less than 1/3rd of households in India drink purified water which is disturbing given the progress India has made otherwise since Independence" said Sachin Tendulkar at the launch of "Shuddh Paani, Swastha Bharat" an initiative of our Livpure Foundation.On the occasion, Mr. Rakesh Malhotra, Founder SAR Group said, "Access to safe drinking water on sustainable basis constitutes a fundamental and inalienable human right for everyone in India. Livpure Foundation has been established to bring into focus this critical problem facing a large population globally &especially India since as per WHO more people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence including war".

According to WHO, an estimated 5,02,000 Indians are affected by waterborne diseases annually. 3,61,000 children under the age of five die each year from diarrhea. Clean drinking water is the only solution to this epidemic problem. We at Livpure Foundation endeavor for a pan India presence with our main focus on urban slums and some selective states where the water crisis is more acute and dangerous. The states on which we aim to focus more are; Bengal, Bihar, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Rajasthan and Haryana.
