A simple need... a profound opportunity to make a difference.
On December 26, 2004, a Tsunami devastated a small village in Southern India. Kadiapattanam was the second hardest hit of all areas in India, and to this day the 9,000 residents do not have a sustainable source of clean water. We want to change that... with your help. View the 2007 summary report.
Our goal is to sponsor, in total, the digging of a well to supply 10,000 to 20,000 liters of drinkable water per day. This will include construction of a 40,000 liter concrete water tank with diesel pumping equipment and filters. We also plan to repair 6 existing, auxiliary wells with diesel pumps for non-drinkable water. We are ready for construction, supported by international specialists in water pumping equipment experienced in similar projects. Only the necessary funds are lacking.
US$11,000 = Construction of the Well - 40,000 liter tank, high-reliability diesel pump and filter system
US$7,200 = 6 auxiliary wells - repair and fitting with diesel pumps, $1,200 each
US$1,800 = Telecom, travel and project development expenses (only expenses, no salaries are paid).
