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.

AGM
Monday 9 October

You are warmly invited to our AGM at 7.30 on Monday 9th October at Wilmslow Methodist Church, Water Lane SK9 5AR, when we will welcome Ian Sanderson to talk about the work of Afrinspire, in Uganda. We have partnered them in a number of projects including the building of water tanks. Prior to the building of these tanks, the nearest water for many community members was a borehole four miles away. Now, instead of queuing daily to bring buckets of water back to their home, people can store up to 7000 litres in each tank, enough to ensure a safe and reliable supply for six families throughout the dry season.

Do come and hear more about their work and how the money that you have helped us raise is used in bringing clean, safe water in this and other ways to communities in rural Africa.

Light refreshments will be served.


Thanks to everyone who supports our events ...
