OUR PARTNER WHO MANAGES THE WATER KIOSK IN MADUDULA WOMEN DEVELOPMENT CENTER
With the HudHud cyclone which has been ruining the region, we had fortunately been able to maintain the distribution of drinking water to all villagers, without increasing the price unlike major cities of the region. Even unusual beneficiaries at our water kiosks came and bought some drinking water cans!
