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, water collection equipment and, more recently, hygiene and sanitation

Over 99% of everything we raise goes directly to water projects.
Since the mid 1980’s, we have raised over £1.3 million; funded over 210 projects (many involving multiple wells) and spent less than £9,000 on running costs.

No coffees, no cinema, no theatre, no fun! 

Let's turn a negative into a positive

Would you donate some of your cinema money or perhaps your coffee money to WWfA?

The project will cost £4000
– can you help us?

The showers at present

What it could look like: user-friendly latrines, hand washing & showers

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 for your support for the 7th March Souperday. Although the attendance was, understandably, about 40% down, because of the Coronavirus situation your generosity meant that the funds raised were only about 20% down - we raised £1280. Brilliant!!
