Punished for Carrying Water

Every day, Annu has a lot of extra chores around the house.  Her mother had polio as a little girl, and needs the help.

With tears in her eyes, Annu said, “I feel sad for my mother.  I do all the work I can for her, but sometimes I just want to play with other children.”

Collecting water for the family is a big task for Annu.  She walks two miles round trip.

Annu explained, “Every morning and every evening I must get water from the open well.  The water is heavy for me, and my hands and legs hurt a lot.”

It takes so long, and it’s so hard to get water, Annu can’t make it to school on time.  

“I’m always late, and the teacher punishes me.  Sometimes she doesn’t let me in the school,” said Annu.

Annu and her family are Christian.  They asked Jesus daily for a solution to their water problem.  When CBN found out about the village through a local pastor, we quickly dug a well there.  Now everyone in the village has clean water close to home.

Annu said, “It’s so easy for me to get water!  My hands and legs don’t hurt anymore.  I get to school on time, and I even have time to play with my friends!  Thank you, CBN, for giving us this well.”
