“[Malvai
is] a backward village
located in the Pullambadi block of Trichy district where 55 community
families
with a total population of 200. Most of them live in tiled houses and
some live
in mud walled thatched houses. They are all daily wage earners taking up
construction laborer and road laying etc. There have no protected
drinking
water facility in their village. There is one deep bore well cum hand
pump
which was provided by the government some years ago in the village now
has
failed and not in use.

There
is only
one public tap in their street but they could not have access to water
because
of the power cut by the Electricity Board often and as most of the time
it is
dry. Their only source of water is from the public tap. They draw water
from the
open wells which are unprotected. By consuming unprotected
drinking water, they suffer from water diseases like diarrhea and
Typhoid etc.  A deep bore well cum hand pump can
be an ideal
solution to fulfill their drinking water need. The chairman of
Pullambadi Union
has appealed DPWA to install a deep bore well cum hand pump in their
location.

Well Dedication Report

In this village of 200, the inhabitants are living in tiled and mud-thatched houses. People earn daily wages working construction. With a public tap often running dry and of no use without electricity and a government installed bore well no longer working, the people have no access to clean drinking water.

Arriving at this village, it was clear to see that both the men and women were grateful for the new hand pump. Thanks to the donation of those at Monogram Communication Services, these villages will never again need to rely on electricity and or unprotected open wells. They can enjoy twenty four-seven access to clean water locally.

Project Type

Borehole and Hand Pump

Girls and women walk long distances for water when safe water is very often right under their feet! Underground rivers, called aquifers, often contain a constant supply of safe water – but you have to get to it. No matter what machine or piece of equipment is used, all drilling is aiming for a borehole that reaches into an aquifer. If the aquifer has water - and after the well is developed - we are able to pull water to the surface utilizing a hand-pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.
