Puttayapalle, Andhra Pradesh

“The newly installed hand pump bore-well is very convenient to women, children even old people, because we need not
walk long distance fetching water. Prior to this well, we were going by walk to more than 2km away to bring water from adjacent village’s water tap. Now we got the well at the centre place of our village. Thanks to the kind donor for helping us with this sustainable water source. We pray for you all and your children all. Wish you a very Happy New year. And now my children are going to their studies in right time without delay. Our health will be improved with hygiene habits which were taught by the Health Worker through this project”.

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.
