This year started with a great gift for Ramana’s Garden and the local village, clean drinking water! We struggled and strove for five long years to replace old sewage and water pipes that endangered the village and Ramana’s kids. We overcame corruption, dirty politics, and even the theft of the new stainless steel replacement pipes. Finally, we recovered the pipes by necessary force with help of local villagers. So, at long last, clean and healthy drinking water flows!
