Review for Water Wells for Africa, Manhattan Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I’ve been involved with WWFA since 1997 when I went on my first trip to Malawi. It was a life-changing experience to understand how powerfully lives are changed —and saved— by providing clean drinking water. I was profoundly struck by the joy of the villagers celebrating their new wells. Through the years WWFA has grown from a loose concept to a fully functioning organization that is making substantial advancements in the human right to safe drinking water. This organization works with in-country partners that they have had fir years. As a result, language and cultural barriers are at a minimum. These partners can be trusted. WWFA has always operated on a bare bones budget — I can assure you that the money that is donated is going to the installation of wells. Your donation dollars go very far in a country where the average income is about $500/year. If you can go on a trip with them, GO! If you can’t, GIVE. Being involved with WWFA is the best thing I’ve done with my life. May it be the same for you.

Review for Water Wells for Africa, Manhattan Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with Water Wells for Africa in one way or another since 1997, and look at it now! WWFA is changing the lives of thousands of people on both sides of the equator. Kurt Dahlin , the president, is a man with a passion for serving others and a vision for the world. With few resources and limited volunteers, Kurt and his teams carefully consider how donated funds are wisely used. I have had the marvelous opportunity to go to Malawi with WWFA 4 times, and I wish I had the words to tell you how thankful the villagers are, to have you feel the joy and gratitude and hope they convey-- hope for themselves and their children. Being involved with WWFA is the best thing I've done in my life.
