Aabid-Surti-2

Have a leaking tap? It’s time to fix it! Or you’ll have Mr. Surti, the one-man NGO, knocking on your door.

Mumbai’s Aabid Surti launched the Drop Dead Foundation to conserve water by offering a free service to repair leaks. Every Sunday, he makes rounds of households, together with a volunteer and plumber, to repair leaking taps free of cost. Just one drop of water falling per second from a leaking tap equals 1,000 liters per month going down the drain! Urban residents can and should play a role in making a difference in addressing the current water crisis. Our huge kudos to Mr. Surti and other citizens who are doing their part to take on this global challenge — every drop makes a difference! WorldWaterDay
