Stories and characters from the Foundation’s Cerag project (2017-20) were woven to create the script of a drama, Pyaas, which was telecast on ATV. It showed a poor rural family being torn apart due to lack of clean drinking water. The younger of the two brothers and his wife led community action to demand the repair of the local drinking water scheme, which was approved by the local councilor due to its broad-based public backing. The drama was entirely shot on-location in village Kohala Payeen of Haripur where pro-poor development planning was facilitated under Cerag. Syed Wajahat Hussain wrote the script and also directed the drama.
