This post is part of the series of posts on what else we've tried to do in addition to clinical care which brings about a change in the villages around us.
Over the last 3 years, many of our surrounding villages suffered from severe drought and one of the major challenges was the availability of potable water all over the region..
It was quite a blessing to know about ‘Sampurn Development India’, who facilitated us to dig borewells and install handpumps in few of surrounding villages especially those hamlets who had to walk quite a long way to fetch water. Over the last month, 5 borewells were dug and handpumps installed in 5 villages. Our plan is to facilitate doing this over the next 3 years. I understand that the parent funding comes from ‘Living Water International’.
Below are few snaps of the process including the inauguration of the handpumps. We praise God that we came to know about the work that ‘SDI’ has been facilitating in providing potable water to rural India.
