OVERVIEW: India is a country of great diversity, with a population of more than one billion people living in an area slightly larger than one-third the size of the United States. In spite of India's rapidly growing economy and high-tech work force, many of its rural people still struggle with poverty. India faces the challenges of growing demand and industrial run-off and poor sanitation in its efforts to provide safe, uncontaminated water for its people. According to the WHO, 900,000 people die each year in India from water related illness. Thirst Relief utilizes clean water wells in India because of the technology and massive population. These wells allow us to provide a large amount of people with clean water in each project location.
