Drinking Water Supply

DMF has conceived 121 projects at a total cost of Rs. 8.23 crore to improve the drinking water scenario in mining-affected villages. Since a uniform approach may not work for bringing tap water to far-flung project villages, several location-specific solutions are being considered for the short and long term..

Health Care

With Kutch being a sparsely populated and immensely vast district, even basic healthcare is difficult to come by. And yet, the vulnerable populace, from newborns and mothers to men at the peak of their productive years, find they need specialty hospitals and cannot find any that are even remotely accessible in their district..

Education

In the vast and harsh landscape of Kutch, where survival itself is difficult, education oftentimes takes a backseat. The males, upon entering the workforce, seek jobs as security guards and drivers of heavy vehicles for mining companies as literacy is not an important criteria to enter these occupations.

Welfare of Women and Children

Premature and low birth weight babies requiring intensive and immediate care have very few options to turn to in Kutch. Poor families would need to travel hundreds of kilometres, perhaps even out of Kutch, to get to a fully-equipped paediatric unit. .

Irrigation

The Edmund Lake in Meghpat village is a large man-made water-harvesting structure constructed in the colonial period. It is in the limestone belt and is surrounded by about five mining sites. The build-up of heavy layers of silt through nearly six decades had drastically reduced the water-holding capacity of the lake, with the result that the agricultural folk found it a risky venture to cultivate castor and othe....
