The Chenchupenta villages are located more than 160 kilometres deep in forest away from the Nagarkurnool district head quarters. Majority of the Chencus have no access to proper medical facilities and frequently fall sick due to various diseases. The school children are also facing problems as they do not have proper transportation and need to travel long distances to visit the nearest school.
