In honour of Mother’s Day, we want to share some of the wonderful, hard-working and inspiring mums we’ve met while working in Africa.
One of the best parts of our job is getting to meet the people that we’re helping. We get to see the transformation of a village or a community and the impact on people’s lives when they have access to clean water, especially for mothers.
These are usually women who were walking for hours to collect dirty water, which mean that they had no free time, no income opportunities, and were always putting themselves last and working extremely hard.
Seeing that moment when someone’s life is changed and such a huge burden is taken away is special. We don’t just help with access to clean water we also get them involved in a market garden project, giving them access to vegetables for their family and an income. We see a lot of very happy mums, which is exactly what we wanted to share with you.
Pictured above are some of the happy mothers your donations have helped in Africa.
