Third Smart Water Project at Tampitiya Village in the Maha Oya, Ampara District of Sri Lanka.
In cooperation with Green Cross Japan, the third Smart Water Project was implemented in September 2019 in Tampitiya Village (Ampara County) in eastern Sri Lanka. We have started to supply water to 285 households (about 1,300 people) in the village. Tampitiya village located in the dry zone with 285 families where is hugely deficient in clean drinking water. Prior to the completion of the water project, the residents were in an environment where dirty and unsafe water could not be secured. Available water was highly contaminated, and many residents who drank continuously became ill with contaminated water, such as diarrhea cholera, and kidney diseases.
The construction work of the above project has been commenced on 22nd April 2019 consequent to the negotiations conducted by Mr. Tom Kawamoto, Assistant to President of Green Cross Japan as directed by Hon. Shoo Iwasaki, President of Green Cross Japan.
