Multiple districts in the western region of Maharashtra have been badly hit by one of worst droughts in the last 14 years. Right now, people in the western region do not have access to any natural sources of water. They are unable to have enough water to drink, cook and clean. They are completely dependent on an external source of water such as water tankers. It is our social responsibility to contribute our share, to care for our own people who are victims of drought.
Vlunteer from "Solitaire CHS" (Dhanori), Pune have come up with an initiative to raise funds from all possible sources. They are associated with an Ahmednagar based NGO, WOTR (www.wotr.org
), who is helping them in sending water tanks to drought affected villages of Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra. WOTR is a not-for-profit NGO that has been working on Watershed Development and Climate Change Adaptation since the past 23 years.
They have currently adopted three small tribal villages - Bhanganwadi, Rautwadi and Jadhavwadi of Parner taluka in the Ahmednagar district. (https://email@example.com,74.3562391,2092m/data=!3m1!1e3).
With the funds raised they can send water tankers to these villages for an entire month and help about 250 families survive this difficult phase, till the monsoons. Each tanker has a capacity of holding about 10,000 litres of water. The charge per tanker is around INR 2000-2500
. With more funds, they will have the ability to support more villages in the Ahmednagar district. Please come forward and contribute to ensure that water reaches our people who are facing a very difficult situation.
WOTR is a registered NGO and raised funds will be handover to WOTR via DD/NEFT/Cheque to pay the water tanker vendors under volunteers close observation. You can reach out to Mr. Kushan Shrroff on +91-7720076924
, if you have any query(ies) on this Initiative and/or NGO.
