This new well will serve the local village with 250 people as well as neighboring villages of over 400.
Story from Ajariya Bande
"The whole of kanam village
has three open streams. The water from these wells are milky with some
living organisms in it. We drink this water because it is the only water
we can get. As a result our village has a good number of people with
water borne diseases.
The water from this village
during dry season is shared together with cattle and goats. Both animals
and humans lack water during dry season. Sometimes the wells dries up
when little rains are experienced throughout the year."
Bande was very happy to see
the drilling going on in his village. He said, "We are now saved from
our long suffering. May God bless the donors for this well."
