Three children die every minute from drinking dirty water.

 With reliable access to clean water, thousands of lives could be saved each day. Provide clean water by building a well in your name or that of a loved one

It costs from just R12 000 per month for a shallow water well in a needy community; Boreholes from R60 000 in South Africa.

Drinking dirty, diseased water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world – and one of the most preventable – so you could be saving countless lives for years to come.

Through our Thirst Relief project, we’re building wells in 9 countries, providing safe water to drink, wash, clean, grow crops and hydrate animals.

Penny Appeal has identified many communities whose lives could be transformed through access to clean, safe water. We utilize a variety of resources to enable our teams to select the most appropriate and cost-effective water provision dependent on the specific needs of communities.

Reliable access to safe, clean water means that drinking, cooking, washing, watering crops and animals and making wudu no longer pose a risk of illness. This allows those less fortunate a chance to break free from poverty and transform their lives for years to come. Once we’ve received the full payment for your well, we can then start to assess the best place for it to be built in your chosen country, with your chosen plaque details. We use a stringent third-party selection process to ensure only the most needy benefit and the whole process from start to finish after payment is an estimated 9 to 12 months. When your well has been built and functional, we’ll send you an individual feedback report so you can see it in action and find out about the people whose lives you’ve changed. Your  feedback report contains:
  • Information on where the well is exactly located
  • Information about the community who have benefited
  • A message from the grateful community
  • Pictures of the construction and the finished well in use
  • A framed picture to share with friends and family
