Charity Aid Group Drills Water Wells in India

Ad Feedback

Clean drinking water is often very difficult for people in some parts of India to obtain.

In response, Operation Blessing International has been in the country drilling water wells. Since January, the charity aid organization has drilled more than 630 wells and showed the people how to make cisterns for capturing and storing rainwater.

So far, more than 175,000 people have benefited from the organization's efforts.

Find out how you can help Operation Blessing International's efforts around the world.

The most recent well was built in the Khamman district, located about 6 hours from Hyderabad, India. The local people face danger every day just trying to gain access to clean drinking water.

They have to walk through snake and scorpion-infested areas just to get to the local river bed. Most of the time, the water is not potable and many villagers become sick after drinking it.
