Bore well inauguration in Haryana, North India

Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout India, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean and safe drinking water. Women and girls especially bear the burden of walking miles at a time to gather water from streams and ponds – full of water-borne disease that is making them and their families sick. Illness from drinking dirty water and the time lost fetching it robs entire communities of their futures. Most villagers in India only have stagnant pond water or polluted river water for their use. This water is used for drinking, cooking and bathing by the entire village of 1,000 or more. The villagers have no choice but to wash themselves, their children and clothing right next to water buffalo and pigs. When this water is used for drinking or cooking, they are exposed to many pollutants and disease-causing germs. Much of the illness that plagues the country comes from bacteria-laden water.
One of the greatest needs in India is for clean, drinking water. To help solve this problem, “Immanuel India Mission” has been actively involved in providing deep bore wells to villages. Each well is fitted with an electric motor pump and a concrete base to keep the well area clean. These wells make a huge difference in the communities.
In such instances because of the bore well the appointed Pastor is generally respected instead of being persecuted.
