Clean water-GCF

“My name is Arumugam Deivanai. I was born in Matale and lived in Kekirawa for 22 years. I moved to Kilinochchi in 1977.

Living here was a struggle because we didn’t have access to clean water. There weren’t many wells either.

We could only get water from a well in the Kovil. We only had that to bathe and drink.

We suffered a lot. There wasn’t enough clean water in these areas and we couldn’t afford to pay for water.
