Safe Water Network (SWN), an internationally renowned NGO, has recently built three water purification plants in the villages of Shankarampet, Podchenpalli, and Kodpak in Medak district.
The plants, built by SWN and Pentair, will provide clean drinking water to low-income households in the three villages. 10,000 residents will benefit from them. They will promote good health by providing potable water at nominal charges.
SWN India was able to undertake the drinking water project after it received funding worth USD 50,235 from the Japanese government under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects scheme.
The purification plants were inaugurated in the presence of Taga Masayuki, Consul-General of Japan (Chennai) and country Director of SWN, Ravindra Sewak.
Speaking on the occasion, Masayuki said, "Safe Water Network India is doing incredible work by providing safe drinking water to vulnerable families. Access to clean, potable water is a basic human right. We are very pleased to support this noble cause. We hope that this project will be the symbol of cooperation and friendship between Japan and India, and that the target communities lead healthy and happy lives."
Sewak also added,"We are greatly honoured to associate with the Government of Japan on such a crucial project. This partnership will further strengthen our vision of reaching millions who need safe water. The pandemic has only underlined the need to maintain good WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) practices to mitigate the risk of water-borne diseases. This initiative is an example of our commitment to promoting healthy living while ensuring financial security for rural communities."
