Ramachandra Puram ST Village (Soorapundi), Tamil Nadu, India

“We are very happy and we are thankful to NEWS NGO and to ARD HOUSE OF LEGENDS, DROP4DROP, U.K. for considering to support our poor people from this village. We had lost all our hopes and now it is a real happiness that our dream has come true. The available water source in our village was very less and we had been in great distress. We were not able to attend to the domestic needs and also to keep ourselves clean and tidy. Now we are very happy as our children are clean and also they are able to go to their schools in time and also able to find safer drinking water. The people in our village are very happy and our Panchayat president is very cooperative in all aspects. We shall maintain the units in a proper manner and we convey our heartfelt thanks to one and all at ARD HOUSE OF LEGENDS, DROP4DROP, U.K.”

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.
