Building wells in Bangladesh

 

A big thanks to everyone in the EverGreenCoin community that helped us fund our first water  and second well in Bangladesh.   These wells will provide clean drinking water for an entire community in Dangipara, Bangladesh.  The EverGreenCoin community is excited to fund its first and second Bangladesh well and we know it is just the first of many.  Please continue to help the EverGreenCoin community help other communities around the world.

Ground has been broken for the first well.  Pictures and updates will be posted in the near future.  Thank you again to everyone that helped make this happen.

The people of Dangipara in the Satkhira district of Bangladesh have been using water from the nearby pond and canal, which is seriously polluted. By building a deep tube well, brother Dhobir has given them reliable access to clean water for drinking, cooking, hygiene and more. Residents of the village said: “We were in a crisis. We are giving you thousands of salaams. We heartily thank you for your kindness to us.”

A child dies from drinking dirty water every 20 seconds. That’s 4,000 children every day whose deaths could have been prevented. You can help save lives by building a well. For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them.

Build a Thirst Relief well and you can give families reliable access to safe, clean water. This allows them to drink, wash, make wudu, grow crops and water their animals safely. It will mean they don’t have to spend hours fetching water each day, freeing up time to go to school, work or look after their families. Clean water means healthier lives, improved livelihoods and, ultimately, a route out of poverty.
