These photos never get old; a partner seeking to make a practical difference in the lives of anyone walking the streets on a hot summer day.
Our NASA partner decided it was time to make a difference in a very easy and practical way after seeing so many suffer as they walked the streets during the hot days of summer. Their idea was “what if we gave them a cup of cool water?” Someone else chimed in “or even cool buttermilk” and the idea took hold and within a short period of time the staff was out on the streets providing a cool refreshing drink when the temperatures were 100 plus degrees. They wanted to scale their outreach and they reached out to me and so for many years we have been providing funds for these Emergency Water Camps. Unfortunately, our resources go only so far and so each year we trust we’ll have something we can send so a few camps can be taken up. This year was no different.
The money you give to Wells for Life goes to projects such as these; basic touches from one person to another. In a world that is being dominated by headlines of racism, injustices and oppression, it’s nice to see a story or an example of people helping others for no other reason than to demonstrate kindness, compassion, empathy and love, and this towards a stranger.
Help me continue making a difference in the rural areas of India with a gift.
Your dollars make it possible for a cup of cool water or even buttermilk to be enjoyed. Your giving goes beyond the small simple touches to larger efforts like drilling bore wells and installing hands pumps or motorized pumps thus ensuring that a needy village or school has fresh water.
Our work impacts everyone in the community; man, woman or child; rich or poor, Hindu, Muslim or Christian, it doesn’t matter, and it happens when you give.
$1000 provides for a Emergency Water Camp and $2500 ends a village or community’s waiting for a hand pump water project; Waiting
