    Nice Story:

    The inventor of a hand-cranked washing machine has traveled to Iraq to distribute the low-cost device to refugees.

    Navjot Sawhney created the ‘Divya’ to allow those living in poverty to be able to wash their clothes more easily.

    It is thought around 70 percent of the world’s population does not have access to electric washing machines.

    The machines are created in the UK and sent to those without access to electricity and water, who would otherwise need to wash clothes by hand.

    Former Bath University student Navjot told the BBC the two-week trip to northern Iraq to hand out the machines has been a “completely humbling experience.”

    “To give them the dignity of clean clothes is very fulfilling,” he said.

    “Some of these families still have members missing, some of these women have suffered major trauma and abuse. It’s just really heartbreaking stuff.
