We have brought water to more than 275 villages
but so much more needs to be done
Wilmslow Wells for Africa
is a direct action, volunteer-run charity, working through trusted contacts in Britain and Africa.
We provide clean water, hygiene and sanitation in drought-stricken areas of Africa.
Over 99% of everything we raise goes directly to water projects.
Since 1983 we have raised over £1.5 million and funded over 340 projects
helping to provide over half a million people with clean water .

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 everyone who supports our events ...
