Maharashtra is facing a severe drought. According to reports, with water levels plummeting to 19%, this could be the worst drought in the last 6 years.
As the people of Maharashtra struggle to survive in such extreme conditions, Khalsa Aid International, a UK-based non-profit aid and relief organization has once again come forward to help those in need.

They are providing 60,000-80,000 litres of water daily to the affected villages. Volunteers are also working towards sanitising the village wells with water purification tablets.
