Fairy Water: visiting different wells in the village

Following the community workshop, we realised that availability of water is an issue in the village. We went to the village clinic to ask about the water conditions and the doctors explained that kidney stones and other kind of water-related diseases are common in the village. We started investigating further into the situation.

Many households still get water manually from wells in the village. Water from the village comes from the mountains resulting in a high level of minerals, visible on the kettles after boiling. We mapped the different kinds of wells in the village and also ran a water survey to understand water usage and the severity of the disease situation.
