A church was planted in rural Bangladesh. A pastor couple from our local partner has been nurturing the church and serving the village, which is situated in an arsenic contaminated area. Among the three neighbouring villages, there was no deep tube well nor safe water. Most people had little choice but to drink from the contaminated shallow-wells or the polluted pond water. Many of the villagers have been sick with arsenic poisoning, constant diarrhea and other stomach related problems. Recently, with funds from Partners International through Hope in Action the church installed a deep tube well. The whole village is very happy and grateful to the church. Everyone from the elderly to children are now getting safe drinking water.
