Driking Water A Scarcity in Flood Ridden Areas
We are looking for support for 15 Litre water filteration units at Rs 1,800 a unit for disaster affected across India like Puri, Odisha. We will deliver, assemble, distribute and train them on the use of the filters deploying volunteers with trusted partner organizations and photo document it all.
KEYS Trust works on sustainability and climate change awareness with volunteers in youth and communities and supports in disaster hit areas. In our work during Kerala floods in 2018 we identified post flood the issues locally on the ground, alerted District Collectors and had them take action. Based on our test reports of ground water contamination, DCs of flood affected 9 districts checked and 2 were found to have heavily contaminated water. On our recommendation Kerala Government procured 11,000 units if the recommended government of India approved terafil filters with World Bank funding and distributed to affected families. We ourselves provided 100 filters to families in a village and secured supplies for local anganwadis from administration, identified an army worm infestation , reported damaged Kerala state water board pipeline damages to curb waste of supply water, reported illegal hoardings and signages on roads and bridges risking public health and safety and damage to a major shutter post floods due to a tree all in a matter of 2 months. Similar work was done with villages in Cyclone Fani affected Puri over a month however despite a lack of support from administration in the state we supported 100 families with water filters with logistical and volunteer support from Red Cross Odisha and look for support to help 4 more villages where we tested ground water and hope to support the poor with clean drinking water access. We have been also invited to help in Assam, West Bengal, Maharashtra and Gujarat and Bihar post disasters but due to a lack of availability of funds and ground level volunteers are stagnant.
