Thandalam SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“I am S.Brindha (32 Years) W/o Sundar of Thandalam SC Village privileged to thank and greet NEWS NGO, DROP4DROP, U.K. and kindly donated by TOMO for a deep Borewell fitted with an Electrical Motor and a 2000 Liters Overhead Tank to our Thandalam SC Village. We normally do not get the required water in our village and we used to go to the nearby horticulture farms and request the farm owners to permit us to pull out water from their open wells. It was a great struggle to pull out the water and our children along with us used to suffer physical hardships and we used to curse gods and goddess for placing us in such a poor conditions. We had no other way. Now after NEWS NGO has installed new water project through kindly donated by TOMO and DROP4DROP U.K. it has become a great support to all the members of the village. We are able to bring water very easily to our home. Our time is saved and our children are able to attend to their homework and also study in a better manner.”

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.
