I am Athikila Udaya Bhaskar, living in Achanta Vemavaram village of Achanta mandalam for the last 50 years. I have a wife, daughter and a son. By profession I am a weaver. Since childhood I use to drink bore well water. I didn’t suffer any trouble till the age of 30. But from the last year onwards I have been suffering from knee pains, frequent cold, cough, etc. Even after I started drinking boiled water, knee pains kept getting worse.
On visiting the doctor, he told me that these types of problems occur because of drinking contaminated water and advised me to drink purified water. On those days there was no water health center in my village. So I had to bring purified water from Achanta village which is just 3km away from our village.
Since then my problem has been solved. Later a WaterHealth center was provided in our village and since then me and my family has lived a happy and healthy life.
Today “water pollution” in India is very high due to rapid growth of population. I sincerely thank the owners of water health centre for establishing this centre for providing safe purified drinking water with an aim of freeing the public from the dangerous waterborne diseases.
