Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) has been implementing, with participation of vulnerable communities, a number of service and developmental programmes including the Drinking Water and Sanitation Programme with the objectives of providing safe drinking water to them in order to bring about improvements in their health and sanitation as well as to ensure their good health and wellbeing. The programme has contributed to reduction of mortality rates and contributed to generation of incomes for these communities. NRCS has been implementing various activities under the Drinking Water Project in a number of districts from 1982 and extending it to other districts. Thus, this programme has also contributed greatly to promotion of the image of NRCS.
