Our Vision includes helping the world where we can with water only.
Rise and Care is a 501c3 grassroots non-profit giving 100% of our donations to the cause. We have 100% volunteers who spend countless hours helping us achieve our goals. We could not be successful without their help and appreciate all their efforts.
We have multiple projects we are supporting.
The first project provided free drinking water in Mehdi Patnam, Hyderabad to over 300 people and was completed successfully in April 2017.
The second project provided a borewell in Ganganpalli, Kakinada rural 533006, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh in June 3, 2017 serving 50 families.
The third project completed was building a borewell in Penugudhuru Karapa Mandalam, Chinna Harijana Peta, Kakinada, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh in June 30, 2017 serving up to 70 families with fresh drinking water available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our fourth project completed in Nandarada, Rajanagaran Mandalan, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh. This well provided 125 families (600+ people) with fresh drinking water 24/7. This is our biggest borewell to date and we are thankful to our generous donors for helping us complete this well.
The fifth project was a borewell in Ambadkar Street Muchumalli, Ramchamdrapuram Mandalam. It was a birthday gift from Vivian to Brian for his birthday and it has forever changed the lives of 25 families (100+ people).
We are in process of completing our sixth well and will post details shortly.
We are also partnering with Compassion through Action to provide food, clothes and basic needs to the homeless in Downtown Los Angeles.
Why Andhra Pradesh?
Andhra Pradesh has many villages that are living in poverty. Officials from the Andhra Pradesh Ground Water department describes the drought severe as levels in the state have plummeted by 2.78 metres during 2015. Bore wells are drying up in many places. People are desperately trying to rely on groundwater, but even that is scarce.
Our founder is from Andhra Pradesh and has seen firsthand the difficulties of the villagers living without a source of fresh water. Currently in the rural areas, people are getting water from lakes or rain. There are no available sources for clean water for the villages and many have to travel many miles to get water to carry miles home.
Is to build as many wells as possible in all the villages anywhere in the world for people to pump water from 24 hours a day 7 days a week for their daily needs and survival.
With your prayers and support, we can build the wells to make a sustainable tangible difference in the quality of the lives for the people in the world.
