Patha Annaluru, Andhra Pradesh
“I express my whole hearted thanks to the donor of this well JCB & drop4drop for helping our community with a hand pump bore-well. Prior to installation of this bore-well, we the women in particular faced many difficulties to get the water from 3KM away from small ponds which contains dirty water. Now after installation of this bore-well we are getting clean water from very near to our homes. We will keep this well with good care. The health worker trained to us and our children in the best health practices, thus we realised about the importance of washing our hands. Now we are keeping ourselves clean. The adults in our village are now having more time to participate in their income earning jobs. Students got now more time to study well. All these possible only with the well. God bless the donors”.
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.
