Bore Wells for Livelihoods
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Palmera will work with the local community in Manthai West, Mannar, to build bore wells for the community to use. These bore wells will enable the 120 families in the Parapankandal East and West Grama Sevaka divisions of the Manthai West region to access clean water within close proximity to their land. The water supply in this areaese villages were has been destroyed or contaminated as a result of the civil war. Many households are currently walkwalking several kilometres to access drinking water. This has also made agriculture and animal rearing difficult livelihoods to maintain.
