Before & After – Our Partners at Work in India

2018-12-10T21:58:53+00:00 December 10th, 2018|

Before our Partners in Hope took action, the women of this Indian village had to dip their containers into a dirty river to draw water for drinking, cooking and washing. They could use a cloth to filter out the sand and grit, but bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa are another story.
