Care For Children International, Inc. Reaches Major Milestone
Milestone reached of drilling, completing, and inaugurating twentieth well for access to clean water in rural Bodh-Gaya, Bihar, India.
As part of Project Clean Water, Care For Children International, Inc. is seeking out rural villages surrounding Bodh-Gaya in the state of Bihar, India, and working to bring fresh, clean water to these locations, where previously there was none. Prior to the completion of the new wells, countless residents living in these rural villages only had access to open water cisterns that were often highly contaminated by both human waste as well as decaying remains of animals that had fallen into the cisterns. According to the Founder and President of Care For Children International, Inc., Jose Gabriel Cabral, "Inauguration of the twentieth new well and pump is not only a big accomplishment for our organization and for Project Clean Water, it is also a milestone that can be measured by the impact on the ground in India where countless lives are being changed, and where the people in the villages are getting a real shot at a healthy life." Cabral added, "Our management team here in America is excited, but the teams in the field in India who are managing the day-to-day operations are extremely happy about the progress being made."
