Context

Drinking water is a dream for 70% of the Indian population. The association Sacha in partnership with a local NGO JMHA, collects donations, medical equipment, school supplies to send to orphanages in southern India in the Tamil Nadu region.

Today, children can have water in the surrounding wells despite the fact that it is unfit for human consumption and causes many health problems including diarrheal diseases, hepatitis A and typhoid fever.

It is in this context that the Safe Water Cube endowment fund and the Sacha association have joined forces to send a Safe Water Cube water fountain which arrived at the beginning of January 2017.
