Largest concentration of poor people in the world
they rely on the generosity of others to get by
India is home to the largest concentration of poor people in the world, with 68.8% of the population living on less than $2 a day. 1.8 million are homeless and 73 million lack adequate housing.
In a country blighted by poverty, it is the young, the elderly and the widowed who are hit the hardest. Our widows’ project provides widowed women with food parcels so they do not go hungry. With no skills or income, and no husband to provide, they rely on the generosity of others to get by.
In India, we have been building hand pumps to bring safe drinking water to its residents. Usually, they would walk for miles in order to fulfil their daily water consumption needs. We have built communal water pumps, allowing them to fill up with ease and avoid contaminated sources. We are continuously working hard to build more, to help the thousands of people that are still in great need.
This sustainable water project aims to reach as many vulnerable people as possible. We aim to alleviate their suffering, wherever they may be, and provide them with the most basic necessity that is clean, safe drinking water.
Help us to make this vision a reality.
