Improving Access to Clean Water : SSSGC Singapore's Efforts in Providing Water Supply to a Village in Need

The sight of women and children waiting in the darkness of the night to fetch water from a tanker every few days has painted a poignant picture of the struggles faced by the residents of Kammavari Palli. This village, nestled just 5 km away from Puttaparthi, has been grappling with a severe water scarcity issue for a considerable period. The absence of a reliable water source in the vicinity has compelled the villagers to rely solely on water tankers for meeting their daily water requirements. This heavy reliance on external sources not only presents logistical hurdles but also underscores the pressing need for sustainable solutions to combat the prevailing water crisis in the area.

In their day-to-day lives, the villagers are compelled to meticulously ration the water supplied by these tankers, giving precedence to essential tasks like drinking, cooking, and sanitation. The unpredictability of tanker schedules and the limited water quantity they bring forth instill a perpetual sense of insecurity among the community members. This perpetual state of uncertainty not only jeopardizes their physical well-being but also takes a toll on their mental and emotional health, as the specter of water scarcity looms large over their heads each passing day.

The initiation of the project in February 2024 marked a turning point for the residents of Kammavari Palli. The installation of water pumps and tanks by the Sri Sathya Sai Global Organisation (SSSGO) Singapore has been a beacon of hope for the 45 households in this village within the Sathya Sai District. The completion of this endeavor in May 2024 signifies a significant milestone in the journey towards alleviating the water woes of the villagers and fostering a more sustainable and secure water supply system for the community.
