Events caterer, KUDOS, has partnered with Life Water and charity Drop4Drop to support construction of a second well project in India’s West Bengal community.

The project has been funded through sales of Life Water across KUDOS sites all around the country, to provide for 300 people in the village of Paschim Chengmari Biswas Para, West Bengal. Life Water is an ethical natural spring water brand that works in partnership with charity Drop4Drop to provide clean water projects to the neediest communities around the world. Every bottle of Life Water sold, funds the delivery of at least 1,000 litres of clean drinking water.

Chief executive of KUDOS, Matthew Herter, said: “We are delighted to have supported another clean water project through the construction of a well in India. As part of our continuous drive to support ethical projects around the world, this is a scheme that can truly bring tangible benefits to people’s lives. Clean water is taken for granted by most, but access to clean water for this village will be transformational.”

KUDOS previously set up clean water for over 400 people in the village of Kiguli, located in the Mpigi District of Central Uganda. The project helped fuel new opportunities, providing much needed nourishment for both crops and residents; helping to boost economic and social well-being throughout the village.

Sanjita Roy Barman, who lives in Biswas Para, said: “We are very grateful for this pump that gives us the clean water we need very desperately. We struggled to get access to water and thank KUDOS for installing this well in our village. Now we only have to walk across the road to get clean water for all our daily needs and can spend more time earning a livelihood for our families.”
