Nestlé India ties up with Department of Medical and Health, Government of Rajasthan to offer access to clean drinking water

As a part of its commitment to provide high quality and clean drinking water, Nestlé India has been undertaking several programmes to facilitate access to clean drinking water over the years. Taking these initiatives a step forward, the company has tied up with the Department of Medical and Health, Government of Rajasthan to extend support and improve primary healthcare in the state by providing access to clean water for consumption by the people.

As part of this partnership, Nestlé India in association with the Department of Medical and Health, Government of Rajasthan, has identified a total of 10 Public Health Sample units where the company will provide clean drinking water through its NGO partner, Piramal Sarvajal. This will be part of Adarsh Public Health Center Yojna established by the Government. Sarvajal will be constructing single phase bore-wells and water tanks with efficient water filtration and delivery mechanism.

Commenting on the partnership, Dr. B.R. Meena, Director Public Health, Department of Medical and Health said, “The Department of Medical and Health, Government of Rajasthan aims to improve the primary healthcare facility in the state and one very important step is to strengthen drinking water facilities. Through this partnership with Nestlé we are reaching out to 10 public health centres providing clean drinking water to people. We are grateful to Nestlé for extending their support in this very meaningful endeavour and look forward to this partnership.”

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Sanjay Khajuria, Senior Vice President Corporate Affairs, Nestlé India said, “Nestlé India is honoured to be partnering with the Department of Medical and Health Government of Rajasthan for a cause which we strongly believe in. We have been involving schools and communities around our factories through joint ownership of water tanks, which help to ensure better upkeep and maintenance of the tanks. Such partnerships have helped in construction of clean drinking water facilities. We also do regular assessment to ensure that the project benefits a sizeable number of people who do not have access to alternate drinking water sources and who cannot afford to construct such facilities themselves”.

In order to strengthen support to this cause, Nestlé India has already constructed 244 water tanks across six states benefitting more than 1,27,000 students under Nestlé’s Clean Drinking Water Projects. Nestlé India has also partnered with Piramal Sarvajal to set up purification systems including UV and RO facilities in projects at various locations.
