The tough soldiers face the wrath of the nature - rising mercury, salty winds, dust storms, dry weather and snake bites.
Gal-Mobile can purify up to 20,000 litres of water a day. Sources said if the water is particularly muddy then only 4,000 litres of water can be purified in a day, Source: Gal Mobile
