Latur has been in the news for quite some time now as it is reeling under severe water crises. Amidst such hostility, one man is distributing water in his neighbourhood for free so that they might get some relief from the crises.
Sheikh Mateen Musa has been distributing over 10,000 litres of water every day for the last three months and providing hope to around 300 households. Mateen draws water from his bore well manually and distributes it to people who stand in long queue with their buckets and containers.
Mateen Bhai’s story was brought to light by a video on the Facebook page Voice of Ram, which shows his benevolent actions. A mathematics teacher in a local school, Mateen Bhai considers his act to be a responsibility, as his house is the only one that has water in the entire neighbourhood.
