Water & Sanitation

Installation of Water Filtration Units for many Schools

The lack of clean drinking water is a persistent issue in many of the schools in Hambantota District in Sri Lanka. The water supplied to schools at present is unfit for drinking purposes due to its high salinity level.

Caritas Humanitarian Aid &  Relief Initiatives, Singapore (CHARIS) came forward to assist the students of most remote villages who are from most poor and vulnerable families to have access to clean and purified drinking water facilities. As a sustainable solution, a number of Water filtration units were installed in three such schools namely Samanalagama Primary School, Hedawinna Primary School and Andaagasyaya Primary School. The students and teachers are very thankful to CHARIS Organization as now they enjoy clean and purified water.
