Constructing Wells

173 children now have clean water!

Child Aid Lanka is working with community organisations in Sri Lanka to construct wells to give schools and families a secure supply of clean water.

So far in 2012 we have funded the construction of three wells in northern Sri Lanka.

  1. Malayalapuram - Completed on 25th March 2012
  2. Melivanum - Completed on 29th March 2012
  3. Malayalapuram - Completed on 2nd April 2012

Wells Finished Off & In Use!

The three new wells funded by Child Aid Lanka are already bringing great benefits to the villagers of northern Sri Lanka.

The pictures below shows one of the wells in Malayalapuram being used by village children after it has received its finishing touches and the surrounding area tidied up.

Three New Wells

Funding from Child Aid Lanka has enabled the construction of three new wells in the remote Vanni region of northern Sri Lanka.

The wells will provide much-needed secure water supplies to communities struggling to re-establish themselves after having been displaced by years of fighting.

Constructing Wells in Northern Sri Lanka

Child Aid Lanka is working with community organisations in Sri Lanka to construct wells to give schools and families a secure supply of clean water.

Malayalapuram is in a forested area of the Vanni, the northern-most district of Sri Lanka, some 100 km south east of Jaffna. Families are now trying to re-establish their communities in this area, having been displaced by years of fighting.

Child Aid Lanka is providing funding to local community development organisation Kaveri Kala Manram to construct wells in and around Malayalapuram village. The work employs local villagers, and provides them with a secure supply of water for drinking, sanitation and irrigation.

As a result of funding provided by Child Aid Lanka, two new wells have been constructed in Malayalapuram and one well in nearby Melivanum. These wells were completed at the end of March and beginning of April, and the villagers held a ceremony to dedicate the new wells.

Child Aid Lanka is now fundraising to secure the money to construct further wells – you can make a donation that will help to bring secure water supplies to more struggling communities
