COLOMBO (News1st): The people of Mederipitya in Matale who do not have a proper bridge in the area are yet to see a glimpse of development, the Gammadda team learnt on its door-to-door campaign.

Crossing the bridge in the area is a matter of life and death for residents.

Around 850 families use this bridge which is the shortest route to travel from Mederipitiya to Dombagoda. The other route is 18 kilometres long.

One individual has laid claim to a wewa in the Parapanthota area in Puttalam, in which residents do not have ownership to at least a well.

As a result, area residents do not have sufficient water for farming or for their consumption as well.

The people of Parapanthota quench their thirst using rain water that drips into a container from the midrib of a coconut leaf.

The village of Nochchiyakula in Vavuniya is now home to the seventh generation of the Telugu community that had settled in the country.

Their only request is for clean drinking water.
