Its fact ARA being a local Non-Governmental Organization is working on researching with other social development areas in Bangladesh.
Before twelve years ago in south-west geographical area of Bangladesh the water have contaminated with arsenic and enough salinity which is fully unable to a drink and the community is facing with arsenicocis and other serious water borne diseases. The above disease affected people is increasing day after day and they are facing with various social obstructs with unemployment and without any treatment.
