Have you ever fetched water on your hips?



Murugayee, the 54-year old woman in the picture, broke her nose in a street-fight to get water from a public tap! Following this unfortunate incident she sought a loan of Rs 7000 from GUARDIAN, a Milaap partner and got piped water at home. Today she is happy that she made the choice to change her situation. Many more women like her would like to say goodbye to fetching water on heads and hips. Will you support this attempt?
My hidden agenda: I will soon be turning 30 (yes, yes, irony & pun). 2014 is the year leading to that landmark. During the period I intend to reach out to people in need - such as these women of Tamil Nadu.
