Living Water Africa fights water poverty by funding the building, fixing and maintenance of water wells in rural Africa

What Are We Doing?
We work with local communities to provide safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene education. Money raised in the UK pays for work by local professional water engineers to fix broken wells and dig new wells.

When building a new well, although we prefer to drill a borehole, this may not always be possible. There may be too many natural pollutants, for instance, or the area could be too remote for drilling rigs to access.
