Marathwada Drought Relief Fund

Marathwada (region in Maharashtra, India) is suffering one of the worst droughts in the living memory. Severe drought has led to drinking water crisis in Marathwada. Women and children are forced to walk several miles for water in the sweltering heat. Hundreds of farmers committed suicide and thousands of people leaving their homes in a desperate attempt to survive.

To help the drought affected rural communities, we are preparing to supply water through tankers.

We aim to supply 100 tankers as soon as possible. 

Each Tanker (12000 Liters) costs Rupees 4000/-

Please help us to help the drought affected communities in Marathwada!

Dear Supporters,

Chincholi Rao is one of the worst affected villages in Marathwada. As all the wells have completely dried, the local community has no choice other than walking several miles for water. In the past five days, we have managed to deliver 65,000 liters of water for 2500 people living in Chincholi Rao. We hope with your support, we’ll continue our supply until the rain starts in June. 

Thanks for your support!
