Water for India

One of the two wells drilled last week from the donations of
 the students of the Academy of Sacred Heart School in St. Charles, Missouri 
There are now 7000 more people who have safe water to drink after seven new wells were bored in India last week. The elders from these slums villages, on the eastern coast of India, have been waiting for years for water-wells to be drilled for their families.

With the 32 wells bored so far this year, over 32,000 people no longer have to fear the water they drink. In the past, all of these villagers used the local drainage pond for their drinking water. Over the past two years, Children’s Hope International donors have provided for the construction of 65 wells.  

There are still 230 villages, in the southern reaches of the state of Andhra Pradesh, on the waiting list for a new well.
