Sourcing clean water in these areas has been a major issue for years due to the high content of fluoride in the ground water, which causes severe kidney diseases in the area. In addition to this, the area faces severe drought and flood conditions each year and it has been an uphill task for the poor villagers to source clean drinking water for their daily needs.
As the project covers a large geographical area, it took more than took two weeks to distribute water tanks in 20 remote locations where sourcing and storing clean drinking water is a major problem. The water tanks were located in central locations close to schools, community centres and places of religious worship to extend their reach. The project will potentially benefit approximately 8,000 villagers in the area.
