Kondrasupalle, Andhra Pradesh
“I was used to retrieve water from a local pond for drinking, bathing and washing for my entire family consisting of 7 members. I was spending 4 to 5 hours daily. It was caused chronic illness to our family members by the pond water. Now, after installation of this hand pump bore-well, I am happy, because, Now, the safe water that pours from a new pump in our home fills us with hope for a healthier, more prosperous future. I am able to earn more a little coping up my growing children’s needs because of this newly installed bore-well facilitated me and my husband to spend more time in our income-generating works. Regular soap hand washing keeps us to be hygienic and healthy. Thanks a lot to Mark, Laraine and friends and Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation for helping us with this well.”
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.
