A man has taken a ‘humanitarian mission’ to India to offer bleach cleaner to locals who are struggling to clean their home and are suffering from ‘chronic’ water and sanitation problems.
The man, who was identified only as Dr T, said he visited the remote Indian town of Gaya to offer his services as part of the ‘Cholera-Free India Campaign’.
He said he was able to reach Gaya via a private plane on Tuesday evening, where he met with a number of locals.
‘I met with them and they came to me, gave me their home addresses, gave their mobile numbers and asked me to come to their town,’ Dr T told The Times of India.
‘The local community in Gaya is very affected by the water crisis in the state and they need bleach cleaner, so I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at their home.’
I told them that it would cost Rs 10,000 ($1,000) for two bottles and that I would come by their homes in two days, but I was told by some of the locals that they had no water supply at all and the water was getting contaminated with the faeces of the animals that are living in the house.
‘At first, I did not think much of it.
I was a bit apprehensive, but then I thought, how am I going to be able to clean up all the faemes in their house, so that they would not get sick?
I think they are not in a position to clean it themselves, so it’s a bit of a humanitarian mission, I guess.’
The man told The Associated Press that he had visited Gaya three times previously, but he did not want to be named because he was unsure of the risks involved.
‘There were a few people that I had to kill because of my age, but other than that I am very confident about what I am doing,’ Dr L said.
‘As long as I can do this, I will do it.’
Dr T said he would be available to answer any questions about his ‘human humanitarian mission’ in the future.
‘We will be doing a similar thing, but this time it will be a bit more international,’ Dr S said.
