COLOMBO (News 1st): A Water Filtration System established by GAMMADDA in the Mahahettiyawa village in Anuradhapura, was vested in the public on Saturday (Feb. 20).
Today’s (20) project in the Mahahettiyawa village, is the 14th Rural Community Project for 2021 handed to the people by GAMMADDA, as part of its Accelerated Development Drive across Sri Lanka.
Residents of the Mahahettiyawa village in Palagala, Kekirawa of the Anuradhapura district are faced with many difficulties, of which the lack of access to clean drinking water remains one of the most crucial issues.
Among their daily struggles, the villagers are compelled to consume brackish water, which is of high salinity resulting in many residents falling ill due to Chronic Kidney Diseases.
Around 100 families in the Mahahettiyawa village are compelled to consume the water from one tube well that provides brackish water due to the lack of water sources suitable for human consumption in the area.
Upon being informed of this critical issue, GAMMADDA launched a project few months back to quench the thirst of the people of Mahahettiyawa who are already burdened with many other issues.
Thereby, the Water Filtration Project launched with the aim of providing clean drinking water was handed to the people, allowing around 100 families in Mahahettiyawa to have a sip of clean water from today.
Most recently on Friday (Feb. 12), another such water project undertaken by GAMMADDA in the Mahasenpura village of Padaviya Divisional Secretariat in Anuradhapura was vested in the public, providing relief to around 3000 people from 600 families in the area.
