The drought in Tamil Nadu and in our Old Age Home is becoming very serious. For many weeks we have had to buy water, which is delivered in lorries and filled in our tanks, which we had to install in our garden. These are costs which we did not consider in our budget. I made a Facebook post about this matter and we’ve graciously received nearly $4,000, which have helps us with costs for water, tanks, pumps and the boring of a well that took place last week. Though unfortunately, the boring did not have success. Please see the video on this post.

For now, we have found a water expert here in Germany, who will travel to Tiruvannamalai as soon as possible to find water and then the boring might be more successful. We are organising this at the moment. These costs might amount to $3,000, and an additional boring, maybe two borings. I cannot calculate these costs, as we do not know, when we will be successful. It all depends on our good fortune!

The situation is very bad for everybody: farmers do not seed and harvest, building does not happen. Tourism suffers, and therefore so do shops and taxis and guesthouses, connected with tourists. Everybody is affected very badly. In addition it is extremely hot. The summermonsum (June/July) does not seem to bring rain and cooling.

Thank you so much for your help. We all pray for rain and hope it comes soon.
