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.

Watch a borehole project from start to finish!!

If you can do find 30 mins to watch this amazing and instructive video compiled from  48 film clips taken the construction of  Kambini borehole.  It is truly fascinating to see how the work is carried out and the challenges that are faced to achieve success.  The final scenes show the first operation of the pump and the users' grateful thanks which is very rewarding
