A community supply of clean drinking water is needed in Hengamuwa to eliminate CKD and other water borne illnesses.


The grama sevaka division of Hengamuwa consists of the villages of Hengamuwa and Gurugoda. It is located in the Kobeiganne DS in the Kurunegala District. Hengamuwa and Gurugoda are home to 300+ families. It’s an agrarian society that depends on a currently inadequate water supply. The area sources water that is pumped from two common wells that are pumped to a common distribution point. The groundwater in this area, however, is contaminated with calcium deposits, resulting in hard water. Consumption of hard water has been linked with kidney disease in studies. This is reflected in the number of kidney patients in the region. The residents desperately need a clean water supply for drinking and other purposes including agriculture. This can only be facilitated through the installation of an RO Plant.


This community, which relies on agriculture and whose produce feeds thousands in the nation, had no source of healthful drinking water. The water in the wells was not of suitable standard for drinking and authorities seemed deaf to the pleas of the villagers. But when they reached out to Gammadda, they found a sympathetic ear. The project was launched on December 23, 2022, completed in a matter of weeks and vested with the people on Independence Day.
