I support ‘Wells Bring Hope’ due to the immense benefits it offers to the people of one of the most distressful and deprived locations of the world. The uniqueness of ‘Wells Bring Hope’s relentless contribution is the sustainable provision for safe water including hygiene and sanitation that helps people of the remote areas to have a chance of living. I happen to know of the Board Directors of ‘Wells Bring Hope’ Ida Beal Harding very closely during our volunteering experiences for a non-profit. I have been seeing her dedicated contributions even travelling to the danger-prone areas as the Ambassador of ‘Wells Bring Hope’ to reach the people whom hardly have access to mere amenities of survival, let alone a rightful decent living. Through this review, I am earnestly requesting for the supports and sponsorship of ‘Wells Bring Hope’ so that it can continue its pledge for the people having dire needs of basic amenities but mostly deprived of.

Wells does great work to help the women of Niger have access to safe water. It's a very noble cause and the people involved are truly warm, compassionate, dedicated and always appreciative of everybody they meet, whether donors, volunteers or public in general.
