You could help bring clean water and electricity to Pakistan

The goverment of Pakistan is hoping to build two new dams that could transform the lives of millions of Pakistanis for the better.

The Diamer-Bhasha Dam, a gravity dam will be built on the River Indus in Gilgit-Balistan in Pakistan. And the Mohmand Dam will be constructed in the Mohmand district of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa.

The Diamer-Bhasha Dam will provide:

  • Clean electricity: producing 4,500 megawatts of electricity through environmentally clean hydropower generation
  • Drinking water: storing an extra 8,500,000 acre feet (10.5 km3) of water for Pakistan that will be used for drinking and irrigation
  • Flood control: controlling flood damage by the River Indus downstream during floods.

The Mohmand Dam will provide:

  • More clean electricity: generating 740 MW of hydroelectricity
  • Irrigation: irrigating 15,100 acres of land
  • Flood control.

With the expense of these projects clear to see, funds have been set up by the Pakistani government to help towards their construction. It’s hoping to raise some of the money for the work through international remittances and, of course, through donations. That’s where you come in.

These dams will transform many communities in Pakistan, giving them water and electricity for years to come.

With the help of the Pakistan Dam Fund, it's hoped that the construction of the Diamir Bhasha dam could start in April 2020 and be completed by 2029. The Mohmand Dam is hoped to start in April 2019 and take 6 years to complete.
