Water: essential for life

By Jon Hargreaves

Our partner, Seva, working among tribal people in Maharashtra had gone to distribute SD cards for latest audio programmes for the 'speaker boxes' when they discovered the community in Kahandol in great distress due to lack of water. They found people desperately trying to dig pits to find water, but with little effect.

Although HCR is sponsoring a well for the village, which is now in the process of being dug (see https://www.h-c-r.org/news/2019/3/4/time-is-running-out), Seva’s Chief Executive, Shilpa Shinde said they had to do something to alleviate the community’s distress. After hunting around to find a water tanker they eventually managed to get hold of one, which arrived in Kahandol village late in the evening. They have arranged for a water tanker to come to the village every two days until the new well is completed.

We’re so proud of our Indian team-mates for this act of compassion!

Doesn't the man's face say it all?
