In order to provide access to clean drinking water to more than 1,450 villagers residing in Maiyur panchayat in Kanchipuram district, Tamil Nadu, Grundfos, a global leader in advanced pump solutions and water technology has partnered with Hand in Hand India, a leading international nonprofit organisation.

The villagers in Maiyur panchayat consisting mostly of labourers have struggled to get water daily, some of them even walking more than two kilometers a day to fetch water. Grundfos India through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative has sponsored a complete drinking water system, including the erection of drinking water bore well, installation of solar operated pump and storage tank arrangement for controlled water use. Through this, more than 290 households have been impacted and their dependency on external sources for drinking water has reduced.

Inaugurating the Maiyur Community Drinking Water Project, Mahathi Parashuram, Regional Head - Public Affairs, Communications & Engagement, Grundfos APAC said ,“Water is a key focus for us at Grundfos. Providing access to water to rural communities through our CSR initiative also directly aligns to our goal of supporting UN’s Sustainability Development Goal 6 (SDG-6). Through this initiative, not only we are bringing safe drinking water closer to the community, we are helping improve health, hygiene and quality of life of these families.”

Speaking on the occasion, Sandip Mookerjee, President, Hand in Hand India, also said, “We at Hand In Hand India works closely on addressing drinking water issues across communities through our Integrated Village Upliftment Programmes. This is only possible through the close collaboration with companies like Grundfos India. We have been working with Grundfos India over the last few years and have seen their dedication to improve the lives of people through the access to clean water.”
