Due to the ongoing drought in the Northern Part of Sri Lanka the RO Plant (water purified system) does not have enough water to filter purified water for all the students and villagers. PINA Organisation donated this RO Plant in October 2018 to the Sigiriya Maha Vidyalaya, this system can filter 10,000 liter purified water per day.
After an urgent request from the Sigiriya Village Head Man and the Principal of the Sigiriya school PINA donated a tube well with all fittings (water pump, pipe lines) so that sufficient groundwater is available daily for the RO-Plant.
Dr. Aruna Abeygoonewardana, President PINA Organisation und Mr. Bandula Perera were present at the work on the tube well.

During the dry seasons in Sri Lanka, the water reservoirs around Sigiriya dry out and local wild elephants
struggle to find water. As a result, elephant herds move closer to local settlements and inadvertently damage small
houses and farming crops.
Following a request from the Sri Lanka Wildlife Department and the Central Cultural Fund of Sigiriya, PINA embarked on realising a more unusual project - the construction of an artificial permanent watering hole which will be supplied with fresh ground water. The aim of this project was to provide a water supply to wildlife in the dry season and to reduce conflict between humans and elephants due to a lack of water.
The construction of the new watering hole has now been completed and PINA was informed by the Wildlife Department that local elephant herds have started frequenting the watering hole. With this project PINA has been able to help both man and animals and we look forward to completing similar projects in the future.
