As I write its 2:30am in India and a warm and balmy 83 but feels like 99 degree night/wee hours of the morning day and yes, you ask, the humidity, it’s 83%. For those in the US that live in the South this is typical summer weather and for India the same. The difference however is power cuts throughout the day and no air conditioning in many of the businesses and homes, especially in the rural areas.
Resultantly it’s no wonder that requests come for financial assistance in order that Summer Relief Water Camps can be set up at different places and times during the year. Each camp costs around $1250 for the week which isn’t too bad but not free either. Thankfully I was able to support a couple of these in 2 different towns in Southern India and have included some photos from the most recent camp.
When you support Wells for Life this is one such initiative that we take up throughout the year as we seek to make an impact in the communities we serve.
More than ever your support is needed. With summer heat and a lack of monsoons, many places in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Karnataka are suffering due to water scarcity. Our project partners are waiting for the green light to take up projects but without your giving the light remains red.
Consider supporting a water project and help us bring lasting relief, not temporary but permanent, through a hand pump water project in a needy village.
