Wilmslow Wells for Africa

Registered Charity No. 328330

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.

We have brought water to almost 200 villages, but so much more needs to be done:

Can you imagine -

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

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.
