Rahela’s Story

Rahela is from Bangladesh and she used to spend an hour a day looking for sources of clean water for drinking and cooking for her family. When she found a water source, people were often rough with her, telling her to get water somewhere else. For washing clothes, dishes, and bathing, her family would use the filthy Buriganga River. In the dry season, even the Buriganga was impossible to use, so they would go without. Now she has water at her front door all year round. It is better quality than any water she has ever had access to before and she gets to use that for every need. No more using the Buriganga River. She was truly grateful for this incredible change for her family.
