Makkuva, a small village in Andhra Pradesh is located near Salur, has a population of approximately 10,000 people. Majority of them are farmers and day laborers. They heavily rely on rain water to grow their crops and personal use. During the dry months (usually from November-May), people struggle for drinking water. Most of the open water wells will dry up this season and people walks miles to get drinking water.
In June 2008, Wisdom For Asia launched its first Breakthrough Water Well Project in this village. This well is located in front of a Public gathering place (Church) and maintained by this members of this church. This water well is 200 feet deep and the water is coming out of solid rock. Villagers are so happy because of this well and the quality of the water. We also furnished a powerful electric motor and Water tank for this well.
This well was sponsored by Andreas Huebner Ministry, Germany.
