Around 500 residents living in a community near Selaiyur, Tambaram, including those from economically stressed groups, had been buying packaged drinking water for years together. United Way Chennai joined hands with the local municipality, brought together corporate and technical support to set up a community RO water plant in the locality. Now the community has access to safe drinking water at almost 1/5th of the cost of water they used to buy earlier. Since many employees from the corporate hail from the same area, it has made them feel very proud.
For us at United Way Chennai, it is not about numbers. Every citizen counts! #UnitedByStories
