Last summer, heavy rains poured into the village where 12-year-old Arpita lives. The ground, already saturated from previous rains, left nowhere else for the waters to go … so the entire village flooded. Muddy water, one foot deep, filled Arpita’s home.
When you live in extreme poverty, access to clean water is hard to come by, but filthy water seems to make its way to your door with great ease.
I’m willing to bet that every person, at some point during your involvement with Compassion, ponders some variation of the following question:
Does Compassion’s ministry really work? Compassion knows how to share stories, but how do I know it’s actually making the difference they claim?
Guess what? We’ve wondered the same thing. So 11 years ago we set out to get proof.
