The 21st October 2008 is a date that people of the Galganuwa, Meegalawa, Padawigama villages in the Anuradhapura District will remember for some time to come. On this day T&S Buttons Lanka finished constructing a large well of 15ft diameter, which now brings potable water to these hard working and long suffering folk, including some of our own employees. For these grateful villagers, it was a godsend as T&S Buttons ended a long period of difficulty in obtaining water. Since the establishment of the villages in 1977, many unsuccessful efforts were made to overcome an acute problem to provide this basic need. The villagers were compelled to travel four kilometers to access the nearest source of clean water. Now, 1500 villagers benefit from this project, with significant improvement in their daily lives.Read more
