Chilekamapalle, Andhra Pradesh
“Previously we have faced drinking water problems for many years. We used to trek about 3km to fetch water from the agriculture open well that was so exposed to pollutants and dust. Our hours of time was wasted previously. At present after receiving help from Bank of America Merrill Lynch our problems were solved. Now we are getting water more quickly, thus we are going to our occupations, earning money. Many thanks to the donors for their help. Our health will also improve through this clean water. The students in our village will now concentrate on their studies”.
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.
