Pondavakkam, Tamil Nadu, India
“We had been taking more strain in walking long distances to bring water to our home and we had to spend more time in bringing the water to home. Moreover it is not sufficient to use for all the purposes. So we used to use very little water and the health was affected. But now we thank you for the support for the new water program and we are able to avail more water and also we use it for all the home use. So we shall find good health and our children shall also find good health. The children are not engaged to fetch water for the home. So we are very happy for this water that was provided to us.”
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.
