Its the same problem villagers face everyday, but for a different cause finally. To put in a water well, you need a big supply of water, to support the drilling activities. So one pre-drilling step is to bring in enough water so the drilling operation can commence and run through to completion. And it takes a LOT of water to put in a well. But, with relief in sight, villagers are happy to volunteer their efforts to get the needed water. A few days of drilling, and hopefully that daily repeating “water in buckets brought in on foot from miles away” cycle finally ends.
