IMWS donates to Maharashtra draught emergency appeal

by

IMG_3787The IMWS Charity committee made an urgent donation to the purchasing of a water tanker in the drought ridden state of Maharashtra, India.

The water crisis in the state has left around nine million severly affected. The fastest and most effective method in the short term is to provide water from neighbouring boroughs some 25 to 40Km away. For this charity Tayyab Trust who operate in India have pledged to provide tankers and the IMWS has made a donation to the cause.

The funds on this occasion were provided from the General Fund. IMWS receive donations throughout the year from the community for the General Fund which is then sent to wherever an urgent need is or arises.
