My honest review on the exclusive screening of No Water Land @ Odeon Covent Garden, 6th September 2023 by Kash Qureshi
On the 6th September 2023, it was a hot and busy weekday after work, I was traveling through London on the underground equipped with a bottle of Volvic strawberry flavoured water, invited to the exclusive screening of No Water Land, a documentary from the Wells on Wheels charity by the founder Shaz Memon.
On arrival, I saw many familiar famous faces from the world of dentistry and social media, the whole cinema was packed out. A sudden realization happened, I was the only Clinical Dental Technician present in this exclusive event.
The screening was introduced by Neha Harlalka who told us the ‘No Water Land’ story and then introduced Shaz Memon the founder of Wells on Wheels, Digimax and author of Instagram for dentists, who came on to stage with his daughter to tell his self story and how his story related to the inspirational story of the documentary. The powerful message of having his daughter on stage with him allowed for all parents in the audience to develop a deeper understanding of the ‘No Water Land’ story.
The documentary was truly amazing and was based on the story of two young girls from villages in rural India. It documented how two young girls in rural India are made to bring water from the wells or rivers. They would carry the water in buckets, on their heads and walk home for miles to bring it back to their families in the village. As the amount carried is in small quantities they would have to make multiple trips throughout the day, which results in them having no time and too tired for education with physical damage and exhaustion from carrying water on their heads for many miles.
The aim of the charity was to put a stop to this by the use of a clever invention of a well on wheels.
The amazing thing about the wells on wheels charity, is the clear impact it has on many peoples lives including the girls. The wheel itself is provided by the charity is developed to allow for easy transportation by the use of the wheels, this means they do not need to carry the water on their heads which also helps minimise damage to their body. It has a large capacity for the storage of water which allows for less trips to collect the water. This allows for the girls to have more time for education and enjoy a better quality of life without being psychically exhausted from repeated trips.
Keep up the amazing work Wells on Wheels team!
