Annapoorna's Clean Drinking Water Drive
March 22, 2018
Annapoorna, apart from serving the regular nutritious breakfast to rural school children, also helps the villages with other essential needs, of which providing the villagers with free clean drinking water is a basic need.
After learning that the various villages' water was infested with high fluoride content, inorganic minerals (making the water hard) and such, Annapoorna decided to help the villages with clean drinking water. So far, 12 villages have been installed with reverse osmosis plants to provide each family with 20 litres of clean safe drinking water daily, thereby helping around 20,000 villagers. Thus far, about ten other villages' schools have been provided with water filters to ensure clean drinking water for the school children. A recent media report mentions that around 76 million Indian villagers do not have access to clean drinking water. Thus, the road ahead has a lot of distance to cover.
