Our first round of water wells in West Africa had completed in November 2019 and Rumel was on hand to see the beneficiaries first hand. It’s amazing what we can do when we all come together. Lives have been transformed. The daily routine prior to these wells being installed would consist of an 8km walk to the local river to get dirty, contaminated water for daily drinking. Bathing was often overlooked as the water was scarce. Bathing would often be done once a month; often bus drivers would refuse to take them on board due to the strong body odour. Mali has a hot climate with average temperatures reaching around 40 degrees C.
The Aydin Foundation water wells have helped to allow families to have a direct source of clean, safe water almost on their doorstep. It has allowed families to grow crops for themselves and also sell on too.
Please continue your donations, fundraising and awareness campaigns; access to clean drinking water is a human right, and the Aydin Foundation plans to deliver this, each country at a time.
