9 Dec, Kathmandu. A drinking water treatment plant has been set up at Trichandra Campus in Ghantaghar, Kathmandu. It is connected by a social organization called Helping Hand for Relief and Development.
In a program organized on Friday, Helping Hand for Relief and Development informed that the plant has been operated in the campus. Speaking on the occasion, Chairman of the Muslim Commission Samim Mian Ansari said that it was important to provide clean water at a time when only nominal mineral water was being supplied.
He said that it was commendable to provide clean drinking water in the campus by checking the quality and standards of water. Chairman Ansari said that the work done by private organizations other than the government level would help in developing the society.
He said, “The importance of water in the current situation, which is a matter of clean water, mineral water, we can easily take a bottle or a jar, but that name is just mineral water, no matter how good it is. But there are only a few names and we are not able to drink the clean water that our soul needs. At present, it is excellent to check the quality standards and make arrangements for drinking pure water in the campus.
Speaking on the occasion, Arif Ansari, coordinator of Helping Hand for Relief and Development and an alumnus, said that he had learned from his experience that the students were facing many problems due to lack of drinking water.
Helping Hand for Relief and Development has set up plants in more than 80 different campuses across the country and plans to set up plants at the Valmiki Campus in Kathmandu, the Metropolitan Police Office and the Patan Joint Campus.
