COLOMBO (News 1st); For the people in Ihaladiggala, a remote village in the Matale District of Sri Lanka, access to clean drinking water was not just a luxury, but a dream.

The more than 300 families living here, mainly depend on agriculture and day labour to survive, and the lack of access to clean drinking water only brought disease and misery to the village.

This village and the surrounding areas have been ravaged by Chronic Kidney Disease for many decades.

Many elders in the village had fallen victim to Chronic Kidney Disease, and their only wish was for their children and their children’s children to never have to suffer like they did.

Yet, their woes and appeals for access to clean drinking water fell on deaf years, only making matters worse for the entire village.

That’s when Gammadda stepped in to help the village, with the support of Mr. Kumar Perera and Mrs. Kamani Perera, two kind-hearted Sri Lankans who came forward to help their fellow Sri Lankans.

Gammadda with the support of the Perera’s was able to hand over a fully functional water purification plant to the village.

Despite Sri Lanka facing many challenges, the completion of the project was made possible with kind-hearted donors.

The Water Purification Plant was constructed with the technical expertise of the Sri Lanka Navy.
