All of them are tea garden workers. They fetch water from a hand pump, which produces iron-contaminated water. Though this wasn’t safe for drinking, they continued using it as they did not have money to afford a filter. Realizing their need, the church distributed the filters.

On World Water Day, Believers Church helped many water lacking communities to have access to safe drinking water through its Clean Water project.
