Billa Kuppam SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

‘I am M. Devaki D/o Mahendran of Billakuppam SC Village Happy and Humbled to thank and greet NEWS NGO, DROP4DROP, U.K. and kindly donated by CATERHAM SCHOOL THROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER for Sponsoring a deep Borewell fitted with an Electrical Motor and a 2000 Liters Overhead Tank to our Billakuppam SC Village. The new water project in our vilage is a real astonishment as we never even imagined that such a facility would be available to poor people like us. We had been longing to see such a facility and now our dreams have come true our children have been relieved from bringing the water on their foreheads and they are finding lots of time to spend on their studies and we are also relieved from tension and are able to pay attention on other works of our home. We are really very thankful to NEWS NGO and DROP4DROP, U.K., CATERHAM SCHOOL THROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER for the support you have made possible in our village. We are getting the required water and our children are able to take bath regularly and wash their hands. THANK YOU!’

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
