Build a Well for Pravi & Semitha
Why we need your help
Pavi and Semitha along with their 2 year old son, Elroy, live in Jaffna. Pavi has his own small shop where he does electrical repairs. The couple also work part-time for the church, overseeing the house groups and youth ministry. They have managed to save enough money to buy a small plot of land but they do not have the finances required to build a house for themselves and their son. They were living in a hut on the land, but because they had no electricity, toilet facilities and there was a high risk of danger from snakes, scorpions and poisonous insects, they have now moved to a small rented house.
£500 will provide a well, ensuring the family have access to clean drinking water, and freeing them from the risk of contracting water-borne diseases from drinking contaminated water.
For all of our well projects, sponsored families will be required to dig their own well, after which a local team will concrete the well and purify the water. Families are taught how to maintain the well, clean it, and chlorinate it, to ensure the well remains safe and continues to provide pure drinking water.
