The documentary is about the water and sanitation program successfully implemented in Earthquake affected areas of AJK and Khaiber Pakhtoon Khwa. The earthquake 2005 measuring 7.6 on Richter scale destroyed the wast area spread over 30,000 sq kilometers. ERRA initiated the Water and Sanitation program where the concept of build back better was finely tuned with using natural water resources like rain water, for daily use. The program also introduced a community-based approach for awareness-raising and health-promoting behaviors like hand washing and using clean drinking water, along with the setting up of water testing labs in the remote areas.
