Drinking to better health

Local philanthropist Sreenivas donated water plant materials worth Rs 85,000

In India’s Anantapur district, many villages have too much fluoride in their water supply, causing weakened bones and health problems such as difficulty walking.

A local philanthropist, Mr. Sreenivas, recently donated Rs 85,000 worth of of water plant material to Narsimpalli school.

Narsimpalli is now providing pure mineral water — which is much healthier — to students and teachers at school. But the school is also selling the mineral water to three villages for a nominal Rs 2 a liter to help improve the health of the surrounding community.
