Stories From The Ground

  • Mrs. Chellamal, Consumer, Marurpatti, Namakkal, Tamil Nadu.

    Walking over 2kms to get drinking water was very difficult for as she had painful legs . She would usually compromise with whatever water she got on days when her pain was immense. Ever since Jal Jeevan kendra has come to her village, her life has changed. “Now I get safe water at anytime and also do not have to walk long distance. I am glad I don't have to adjust with quality of water I drink. I am so thankful that my leg pains have considerably improved ever since I am drinking safe water from Jal Jeevan kendra”
