RO Project in Elapathgama is Completed
Elapathgama is an isolated village in the Anuradhapura District which is overshadowed by the threat of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) possibly caused by pesticides and chemicals. The Elapathgama villagers depend on harvesting rice fields for their main source of income. The frequent use of pesticides and chemicals in the paddy industry has led to the contamination of the water sources leading to increasing incidences of CKD among the villagers in Elapathgama including the Buddhist priest, Revatha Thero, who informed us about this tragedy.
The Elapathgama R.O. Project is one of many major endeavors currently undertaken by the Foundation of Goodness to give disadvantaged communities access to clean drinking water.
