Over 9,000 Drought-Hit People Receive Access to Water in Diocese of Bengaluru

May 2, 2016

Believers Church Diocese of Bengaluru inaugurated a new bore well at Mahadevapura village in Mandya District of Karnataka on 2nd May 2016.

NDTV covered the plight of these villagers in a report recently. Every year, during summer, the villagers go through severe scarcity of water though their village is located near to the river of Cauvery and KRS dam. And at those times, they used to get water from tankers or bore wells. But this year, even the bore wells and pumps have dried up. Now, the villagers have to travel at least 4 kilometres to reach to the nearest water source. Since majority of them are daily wage labourers, it is difficult for them to go and collect water from far places as it consumes a lot of their time.
