During the entire period of 1999-2001 the rains failed. Most parts of South India were affected badly by water shortages. As the water table had dropped, many were engaged in digging deeper wells and implementing rainwater harvesting. Sri Sakthi Amma quickly purchased four large tankers and continuously supplied drinking water to the rural areas. An average of 90,000 liters was distributed each day to people. During the summer season, Amma's ‘Matruganga’ project actively supplies water to the villages in the arid region for three weeks, each year.

Under this program, clean drinking water from Palar river and borewells are supplied to villagers who do not have potable water supply. In addition to the scheme, approximately 35 borewells are donated to rural schools, orphanages, temple sites and villages every year to improve water supply.
