Thoothukudi, 29th August, 2019: Water is a way of life. To ensure a sustainable livelihood for the villagers of Thoothukudi, Sterlite Copper provided financial aid for installing purified drinking water pipeline connection by Thoothukudi Corporation, to more than 270 families on 29th August, 2019. The sponsorship was initiated under Sterlite Copper’s Tamira Surabhi project.
The villagers were from Pandarampatti, Madathur, Sankerraperi and Silverpuram. The company spent INR 35 lakhs for this initiative.
Tamira Surabhi is the key project under the Muthucharam initiative of Sterlite Copper which was born out of the numerous requests coming from the villagers in Thoothukudi who are in high demand of drinking water.
Launched on April 11th 2019, the project aims to provide surrounding villages with purified drinking water. The project aims to cover 20 villages in and around Thoothukudi in a phased out manner.
The initiative was very well received by the villagers and they thanked Sterlite Copper for their efforts to ensure access to clean drinking water to villages in Thoothukudi.
