10-1-10 Expedition needs your help providing clean water to disadvantaged areas

Wishing Well International Foundation and H2O International (South Africa) have joined forces to provide water to communities in disadvantaged areas.

Under the 10-1-10 Expedition Africa project, the two organisations travel to rural areas which have no access to running water and install water filters to purify the water obtained from boreholes, rivers, and dams in these communities.

CEO and founder of Wishing Well International Foundation, Guillermo Guzman says they have deployed 120 filters which will provide 1200 people with clean water.

We are planning another expedition to deploy 120 filters again and we know South African are generous people.

We need R180 000 and we basically need 1 200 people to donate R150 because that will provide water for one person for ten years.
