We have been in contact with John Masa, the pastor of Rapha Church, for two years. His church is located in Kothuru, Pithapuram Mandal, East Godavari, Andhra Pradesh. The needs in this community are many, and clean water would help solve many of its daily challenges. A well near the church property would provide water for more than 300 families. The nearby child-care facility would use the clean water for drinking, cooking, and bathing. The community of believers at Rapha Church would be responsible for the maintenance of the well. The cost for the well is $2,100. Any additional funds that come in for this project will be used towards food for nomadic families who are begging for food in this area.
An SSI team will travel to this community at the earliest possible opportunity, but we cannot wait to send the funds to complete the well project.
