During the past few months worldwide attention has been focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. For us at WaterBridge Outreach it became clear that, as the pandemic spread, our priority would be to assist our partner organizations with their immediate needs - providing the basics of life (food and water) to families in their communities. All of us are struggling during this unprecedented time but for those already living on the brink of life, in poverty, without food security, without access to healthcare, and without access to clean water (to drink and to wash hands), with minimal (if any) government support, the need is acute. With your support we have been able to channel funds to our partner organizations to assist them during the pandemic. We understand that this is a stressful time for all and your support has been greatly appreciated.
In many parts of India the Dalits and Irulas – the communities originally referred to as the “Untouchables” in the caste system – still suffer discrimination. Working with Curt Degler of South Asian Village Empowerment International, we helped to fund a rice distribution in Tamil Nadu in some of the villages we've both visited and have books and water projects in. Good quality rice was provided for 100 families during this difficult time of the pandemic.
Stay Safe, Be Kind, Be Calm.
