On 21 February 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported: In the village of Shikharpur in Nepal's remote Himalayan foothills, the faint sound of water can be heard trickling through a large metal pump. Standing in golden mustard fields, a huge solar panel powers the pump that provides some 40,000 liters of water daily to families still recovering from Nepal's devastating 2015 earthquake. 'Before (the pump) we used to walk two or three hours a day to collect water,' said Daley Sarki, a vegetable farmer whose mud home still bears the cracked scars of the disaster. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and health, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

. . . To improve access to clean water, a project led by British charity Renewable World set up a solar-powered pump that collects underground water and transfers it up 72 meters (236 ft) to the Himalayan village, where it is stored in tanks. ...

The climate-smart technology has significantly improved people's health, Bolakhe told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding that better sanitation and access to drinking water have limited the spread of water-borne diseases.
