“By means of water, we give life to everything.”
Al Qur’an, (21:30)
Sri Lanka, being a ‘middle-income country’, has made crucial progress in reducing extreme poverty and in providing access to clean water supply. In spite of that, many rural communities across the country are still facing the hardship of obtaining clean water.
One of the major problems facing communities in rural areas is the lack of access to clean, drinking water. Severe drought, inaccessible roads and limited access to public transport mean that families have to walk miles to find drinking water. Some of these villages are so secluded that there are no sources of water to set-up water schemes and purification systems.
But then you stepped in.
Together, we have helped to build vital, life-sustaining water wells in different villages around Sri Lanka, benefiting hundreds of families with clean water.
