Yendapally Village Water Well

Special Thanks to Doc & Brenda Cox for their Support for the 2017 Running Water for the Living Water Harrisburg Marathon Team!

  • Population: 300 people    
  • Rate of Literacy: 10%
  • They always have a dry climate and in the summer it is very hot with temperatures reaching up to 120 degrees each day
  • We estimate this well will be used by 70 families per day
  • Location of well: In a remote Koya people group village.
  • Responsible for maintenance: G. Baburao
  • Before this well, they had to get water from a stream/creek. They would dig holes to "catch" the water and use jars to pull it out. They would boil the water before they could use it.
  • In the summer, the creeks would typically dry up and produce very little water. 
  • They suffer from malaria & typhoid and fever. They also get throat allergies.
  • When they saw the well digging truck, they were very excited!!
