Paderu (Paderoo) is a tribal village located in the north-eastern region of Andhra Pradesh. It is approximately 150 kilometers (2.5 hours by car) from Vizag city.
Clean drinking water is very scarce in this region. People walk minimum 5 kilometers to get water 2 times every day. Majority of the people rely on open source water and they are often infested with malaria and other bacteria. Water often has muddy brown color.
In April 2013, Wisdom For Asia drilled the water well in this place. This is our SECOND Breakthrough Water Well Project in India. This water well was drilled outside the campus wall of a church where public can have easy access to the water. This church will take care of the maintenance of this water well. This water well is 100 feet deep and serves over 1000 people clean drinking water.
Our special thanks to all the members of Forgiven Church providing the water well to this community.
