Latur: Meet the real superhero of Latur Sheikh Mateen Musa who is distributing 10000-12000 litres of water everyday to around 300 homes absolutely free. Latur has been in the news for its drastic water crisis, but this man is helping residents recover from the crisis from past 3 months.
It’s not often we see people like Mateen who does not care about ‘Religion’ or ‘Return on Investment’.
Mateen is a mathematics teacher in Lature school, he gives away nearly 10,000 litres of water everyday, and does not ask for any monetary compensation.
He manually draws water from his bore well and distributes to it to people who form a queue with their buckets and containers.
The two-year drought has left the city, with a population of half a million people, parched and dry, just like seven other districts in the drought-hit Marathwada region. The government has been sending water trains to the area in hopes of fixing the situation. Called the Jaldoot, the train has carried over four million litres of water in seven trips from Miraj, south Maharashtra, to Latur.
