drop of waterWater is playing a big role in transforming a community in rural India which has practiced cultural slavery for 500 years.  

Noel Yeates, vice president of World Help, an international Christian humanitarian organization, describes the work they are doing with an impoverished tribal group in India. They went into one particular village and provided clean water which then built a level of trust.

"From there we were able to build a church building," she reports, "which not only is a wonderful place to worship but also is a place for this community to gather, and to educate them, and really begin to change this culture from the inside out."

That includes helping to provide an education and free girls who would otherwise be forced into a life of prostitution. 

Yeates puts into perspective the seriousness of dirty water.

"It's estimated," she says, "that you can combine war, violence, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and even traffic accidents – all that combined – and dirty water still kills more people."

She says everyone should be concerned about this huge issue and everyone can be a part of the solution.
