Pradesh - a district in India.
We recommend this project organised by
the Rotary Club Sherwood Sunrisers.
Up to now 230 bore holes have been provided
with provision for a further 65 bore holes this year. At this level it is estimated
that this project will ensure safe clean drinking water for about 50,000 people
for the next 15 years.
We applaud Terry Leivers and members of the Sherwood
Sunrisers, for providing Safe Clean Drinking Water to the Indian province of Andhra

water was delivered by hand cart around slums. I was asked for support in providing
a tanker. This was achieved by November 2007. The tanker is on the road seven
days a week carrying 6,000 litres of water to over 4,000 families, bringing relief
not only to the slums, but those pushing the hand carts.
have now been asked for help in providing reverse osmosis pumps to give clean
safe drinking water by cleaning polluted water. This polluted water is readily
available, the cause of sickness and disease to people without the means of redress.
One small reverse osmosis pump can, I am told, produce 1,000 litres per hour of
clean safe drinking water.
A matching grant provided by Rotary
International brings the cost of each pump from £2,000 to £1,000,
this is where I have been asked for support. The cost of housing and maintaining
the project will be raised locally and monitored by District 1220 UK. The idea
being that the people concerned are being helped to help themselves. It's estimated
that the provision of 14 pumps will provide clean water for 60,000 people and
can be sustained. Therefore the total amount I am looking to raise is £14,000,
but £1,000 will purchase a reverse osmosis pump.
charity AquaSupport passes all funds received to the intended project and monitors
the way funds are spent. All costs incurred in running AquaSupport are met by
trustees. The bulk of funds raised are from band concerts sponsored by Hacketts
of Eckington Beer Wines and Spirits.
It's for this, that we
are happy in giving this project our support.
