Raise awareness


Residents of Ukkulankulama are experiencing an epidemic of Chronic Kidney Diseases due to their contaminated water supply.


Ukkulankulama Vidyalaya is a school in Ukkulankulama, Mihinthalaya. It is located in the Anuradhapura District. The parents of these children mainly work as farmers, and as daily wage casual labourers. They live in a state of abject poverty. An additional problem the village faces is the lack of clean drinking water. The groundwater is brackish and contaminated with calcium deposits. There are currently 22 people being treated for kidney ailments- many more have died. The villagers have made their pleas known to Gammadda.


Installation of an RO Plant in the village of Ukkulankulama using the tube well as a water source. Install a Water Filling Station situated in the Ukkulankulama Vidyalaya which will provide the residents of Ukkulankulama and neighboring villages have access to clean drinking water free of harmful pollutants. Further, will reduced incidence rate of water borne illnesses in resident population. Moreover, we will introduce a preventive and periodic maintenance plan to ensure project longevity by forming a Gammadda Saviya.
