12 families from Chitrapur village are face the threat of serious water-borne diseases because of a broken well. The water in the only well in the village becomes unusable each monsoon. The torrents of rain wash down the dirt from the highlands into the well. Even though they take precautions like boiling the water, many people fall sick. The well was last repaired seven years ago and needs immediate attention.
Call to Action: Please call the Block Development Officer, Arjun Ram on +91 9693818336 and ask him to get the well fixed immediately.
