“[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.

Partner Profile

Wells for Life® is seeking to address the problem in India one well
at a time, and to do so from a holistic perspective by first addressing
the physical needs of the individual and then their community. We are
seeking to accomplish this task through forming partnerships with other
organizations that share the same passion we do for meeting one of the
most basic needs: the need for water.

Wells for Life® continues to receive requests for water wells in
different rural villages and communities throughout India. It is our
vision to meet every viable request presented to us, and to do it in a
sustainable way with lasting impact. We seek to carry out our projects
with the wholehearted participation of the receiving community and to
work with the community. Taking ownership of the well project, they
will keep it a life giving source of water for years to come.

With each of our projects we utilize the expertise of Indian
professionals trained in engineering, hydrogeology, and construction as
well gain the help of the receiving community to carry out the project.
Furthermore, it is our goal to establish the location of each project
on property that will afford equal access to all those within the
village or community, regardless of one's faith or caste.

Finally, it is our hope that each project initiated will bring immediate relief and be a building block for future projects for all those we are in partnership with.
