Give Life,
Give Water.

The Well foundation at its heart is a water charity with the primary aim to raise money to install hand pumps, deep bore wells and establish health and sanitation programmes in order to provide safe clean drinking water for all

Give Life,<br>Give Water.

Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don't have access to clean drinking water.

300 million do not have access to any water at all!!

Over 14 million women and 4 million children spend over one hour a day collecting drinking water in sub Saharan Africa, often trekking through harsh terrain facing animal and human predators.

Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles.

A personalised plaque for you or your loved one

We work with our donors and provide feedback, which includes project reports and pictures of the wells and construction. All wells are personalised with a plaque of the donor's name (or a name chosen by the donor if donated on behalf of a loved one).

Please click the Gift aid box as this is used for future repairs to any Water Wells. We proportion a small percentage of the gift aid from each project for the maintenance and upkeep of all water projects, thus ensuring the longevity of all of the projects.

Some words from our donors

All donations received with thanks!

We can't do what we do without your help.

The Well Foundation is an incredible charity which has allowed myself and my family to donate to excellent causes on a monthly basis. We donate knowing full well where our money is going & that the full amount is reaching the desired places. Within the past year we have managed to build wells, provide Braille Qurans and also help in building part of a mosque. This is all with the help of The Well Foundation and it's fantastic volunteers.

Having been connected to the charity for many years I have experienced the joy of the recipients of a water well flowing back to the donors and I have loved being part of that bridge. It is like experiencing a miracle. In these precious moments there is a powerful realisation that we are all human and we are all connected in our depths. Water transcends all barriers: from the depths of a well to the provision of life. The gift of water you give to others is the gift you give to yourself. Simply going a day without water quickly makes you appreciate that having clean water is a true blessing. The Well Foundation is a cause that is very close to my heart. It connects me to a purpose that is far greater and more eternal than myself and I have been able to share this gift with my family. A continuous charity where the benefit of your contribution will continue to flow. Faiza and Fahim and The Well Foundation have given me more than I could have ever imagined on this journey and they will always have my continued support. Thank you.

I heard about The Well Foundation and the charitable work they carry out around the world about 5 years ago. I was Particularly interested in their clean water projects and decided to contribute to one of them. I was given an accurate account of the works and provided photographs on completion. Me and my family were very impressed with the high standard of work and were kept informed of progress throughout. It is amazing that this charity and its team work thanklessly and selflessly all year around. I will always support them, their work makes a great impact and every penny goes towards the cause. A supporter for life!
