Miya Para

We live in the village of Miya Para in West Bengal. We came to this village many years ago after we got married. As long as we can remember we have faced problems with drinking water but there was no bore-well in the village. We used to walk for hours to collect water and, once we got to the water, had to queue for hours. The water we consumed used to cause us to suffer from constipation and other diseases. Now we have plenty of clean water for cooking and cleaning all of the time – even at night.
