An Australian Tamil in Jaffna: Understanding their Daily Challenges of Accessing Drinking Water
I ride to my uncle's house every day to collect water for my Periyamma during curfew time in Jaffna. This made me realise the difficulties faced by individuals and families here on a daily basis just to get drinking water.

I ride to my uncle's house every day to collect water for my Periyamma during curfew time in Jaffna. This made me realise the difficulties faced by individuals and families here on a daily basis just to access water to drink.

Not everyone has access to clean water and most of the time they end up walking to the neighbour's house or a few kms just to get drinking water.
 
I feel their pain now, as at home in Sydney, I merely turn the tap on and I get drinking water or water for daily use easily.  

A tube well or an open well is what is used in Jaffna to get drinking water and is the cause of some of the difficulties faced by the local people there. In this particular Vlog I have decided to focus on how people get drinking water in Jaffna and the difficulties faced in obtaining it.
