Veerannapalle, Andhra Pradesh

‘We are very happy now, because now I need not walk a long distance to bring my domestic water as in our village through the help of Malcolm Thorpe and Sussex Cricket Foundation, a hand pump bore-well is installed. They solved our many problems with this well, because now we are able to save our energy and time. Prior to this well we spend our most of energy and time to bring water from a long distance. As we are now having lot of time adults are spending this time to their income generating activities, children are spending their time in education. The Health Worker is teaching us about health & hygiene habits. We are having a good habit of soap hand washing from time to time without fail. Our whole hearted gratitude to the sponsors of this well”

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.
