Donate to a Well

Cooking for your family here...

A Gift that Lasts

It’s easy to take for granted, but clean water is a luxury in some parts of the world.

 

£935 will provide a well, ensuring families have access to clean drinking water, and freeing them from the risk of contracting water-borne diseases from drinking contaminated water. Sponsored families will be required to dig their own well, after which a local team will concrete the well and purify the water. Families are taught how to maintain the well, clean it, and chlorinate it, to ensure the well remains safe and continues to provide pure drinking water.

'The work an unknown good man has done is like a vein of water flowing hidden underground, secretly making the ground green.'

Thomas Carlyle
