For many years, AMDA has provided services pertaining to maternal and infant health at Danpur, a village located six kilometers from the central Bodhgaya in Bihar. This time, a bore-well construction project was launched in this very village. (Danpur is the closest village from the place where AMDA’s affiliated organization, Japan India Friendship Medical Trust, is currently trying to set up its hub.)

In November 2018, based on an inquiry from the villagers who were having trouble drawing water from its village pump, AMDA decided to jointly construct a new bore well with Mr. Rajesh (who heads Ecoles de la Terre Welfare Society, an India-based charitable society that runs a school in the locality) and Ms. Vedha (former AMDA Peace Clinic staff who now runs Vedha Mother Teresa Welfare Trust.)
