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

Over 99% of everything we raise goes directly to water projects.
Since the mid 1980’s, we have raised over £1 million; funded 190 projects (many involving multiple wells) and spent less than £9,000 on running costs.

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.
