We have brought water to more than 200 villages
but so much more needs to be done
Wilmslow Wells for Africa
is a direct action charity run by volunteers, working through trusted contacts in Britain and Africa. We improve life in drought-stricken areas of Africa by providing wells, pumps, dams and water collection equipment
Can you imagine...
● Not having a tap in your house ● Walking a mile to collect polluted water
● Five of your children dying of water-borne diseases
Brenda Mottershead witnessed these shocking conditions in South Africa.
They inspired her to establish Wilmslow Wells for Africa ...
Now just imagine ... the joy of having a well in your village
from which everyone can draw clean water
The average family of four in Britain uses 500 litres of water a day.
Yet in many parts of Africa the only water available is so polluted that it kills both the humans and wildlife that have to share its source.
Thanks to five colleagues of Dave Tonks from Coffey. They raised £2,500 cycling the Cambrian trail across Wales.169 km with 3,967 metres ascent!
Well done guys and many thanks from everyone at Wilmslow Wells.
