WATER PROJECT by Carry The Water
Phool Bagh Leper Colony, Vizianagaram District
Borewell with Submersible Pump, Overhead Tank and Gravity Taps
The Phool Bagh Leper Colony in the Vizianagaram District in Andhra Pradesh is desperately in need of a bore well with a submersible pump due the overhead water tank for their current well being on the verge of collapsing after 30 years. About 180 individuals comprise this community of 60 homes, including 20 children. Many individuals suffer from disabilities from leprosy that prevent them from working; however, some earn their income from manual labor or begging in the city.
