Water borne seasonal diseases are common in coastal villages which are prone to endemic natural calamities. The project aims at providing safe & potable drinking water for Yanadi tribal families which are excluded from the mainstream of society. Besides malnutrition owing to poverty, the families ought to go to private doctors for ailments due to eruption of communicable diseases. Provision of Ground water to 400 tribal families by fixing hand pumps in their house sites is the proposed project.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Eruption of communicable due to contamination of fresh water and diseases such as Malaria, Diarrhea & Typhoid takes place in the interior villages which are pron to endemic natural calamities. Vulnerable sections namely women, aged and children are the most effected as they are prone to get immediately affected with the said water borne diseases. People fetch water from far of places even for consumption purposes.The families & their income generating cattle will be benefited through the project
How will this project solve this problem?
The earth of the proposed target location is sandy soil. Good / potable / safe water can be extracted at a depth of 20-100 feet. Installation of hand pumps will solve the problems stated above. The area is close to the coast of the Bay of Bengal. SFIRD proposes to install these hand bore pumps in the house sites of the proposed tribal families which are being effected. People will collaborate and extend their cooperation through unskilled labor work during the hand bore pumps installation work.
Potential Long Term Impact
Children and other vulnerable sections of the proposed 400 families will get benefited at a longer run. People will be motivated and mobilized to meet the future maintenance cos of the proposed bore pumps. Totally over 2000 human population and the cattle they possess for income generation will be benefited besides the people belonging to neighboring families of theirs.
