The elderly are most affected in drought. This 65 year old lady is waiting for the tanker to arrive so she can ask someone in the village to help her store 3 pots of drinking water for her, which she uses for 3 days for household and drinking purposes until the next tanker arrives.
To make potable water available to elderly people in this village it costs Rs. 3500 per tanker. Donate now through DoGoodNow.in and make drinking water accessible to them.
The elderly are most affected in drought. Baburao Chauhan has lived in this village for 65 years. He says he has never seen such a severe water crisis as seen in the last 3 years. He says..
"There is no water, no jobs, no crops to grow, youngsters have migrated leaving us here alone. We have to walk 2 kms a day even for a pot of water or borrow water from neighbours."
While the rains have brought hope to the region, rebuilding depleted water sources and making potable drinking water available to these villages is still a distant dream. Your donation will help reach potable water to them.
