Care For Children International, Inc. Reaches Another Major Milestone
Milestone reached of drilling, completing, and inaugurating 100th fresh-water 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 is 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 regularly fall into the cisterns. According to the Founder and President of Care For Children International, Inc., Jose Gabriel Cabral, "We are extremely excited about reaching this significant milestone. Our organization firmly believes that access to clean, fresh water should be a basic human right, not a luxury. We are working very hard to accomplish this, and we're able to witness first-hand how life-changing it can be for people to have access to clean water. We'd like to thank all of our team members, as well as all of the individuals and organizations around the world who help make our work possible by providing financial and logistical support to Care For Children International, Inc."
Project Clean Water is a major initiative launched in late 2016 by Care For Children International, Inc., managed locally from its headquarters in Fall River, Massachusetts. In addition to the work being done in India, Care For Children International, Inc. has teams and operations in numerous parts of the globe, including Brazil, Africa, Haiti and the Azores, Portugal.
