Drought-hit Surali in Rajasthan will soon have its own well, thanks to this Facebook group.
A travellogue posted on a Facebook group called ‘Sanchari,’ spoke of the difficulties faced by citizens of drought-hit Surali. The group consists of over 2 lakh members, many of whom responded to the post by launching the ‘Mrubhoomiyiloru Neerurvyaayi Sanchariyuda Kinar’ (Traveller’s Well In The Desert) campaign to raise funds. The campaign started in mid-June and the group successfully gifted the village a well.
They have also funded the construction of 6 other wells that will benefit as many as 200 families each. The group is now looking to help other villages in a similar situation.
Here’s to ensuing well connectivity among dry lands!
