WASH is the mutual term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.  Due to their  inter connection, these three core issues are taken together to epitomize this growing sector. While each a separate field of work, each is reliant on the presence of the other. For example, without toilets, water sources become contaminated; without clean water, basic hygiene practices are to be compromised. Following the shocking earthquake, drinking water schemes   got damaged creating scarcity of water for both drinking and other purposes. UN-Nepal, in such turbulent situation, with the generous support of development partners, both home and abroad, got involved into construction and rehabilitation of new and damaged water supply schemes in Gorkha district.
