Carrollton, Texas — Gospel for Asia (GFA) plans to drill 5,000 water wells across India and South Asia over the course of this next year.
There are millions of Dalits or “untouchables,” those deemed inferior simply because of their caste. “Untouchables” are likely barred from using village water wells, placing individuals and families in desperate situations.
“Jesus Wells,” a GFA ministry, are often the only water option for “untouchables” and countless others. The wells not only provide critical access to drinking water but also ensure villagers have clean water essential for cooking and other household chores.
“It is our heart to provide clean water to all people regardless of their background,” said K.P. Yohannon, founder/international director of GFA.
