Mahodar water project
Sairam to all,
Vashi Samithi was trying hard since last two years to provide drinking water
facility to their adopted village Mahodar. Last year we had drilled bore
well but we could not fit a pump as power supply was not available. We were
running pillar to post for power supply, still not successful in getting a
connection. However, Swami had recently shown a way to us as one of the
village person helped us by providing power supply from his house. Villagers
also came forward in contributing some money for arranging the pump set.
Finally we have arranged the pump set and water started flowing in to their
houses. Villagers ( mainly ladies)expressed their happiness to our lord
SAIRAM for providing water at their door step. We have to still take up
phase-2 of this scheme in which we want to pump water to near by adivasi
We thank Saiprem trust members and all who have helped us in completing this
We pray to Bhagwan for his blessings in completing the next phase of
project. Some photos of the project are attached at following link.
