RAW'S Wine to Water Project 2013
Two years ago we dug our first RAW deep-bore water well in drought stricken southern Ethiopia. Our well there saved hundreds of lives and improved hundreds more. In fact, our well in Ethiopia was such a success that I knew we had to go back. This time we went to neighboring Uganda and repaired and refurbished 13 defunct water wells. We also included an educational component to teach the locals illness prevention, how to fix the well and to save a little bit of money each month in case they need a part. UNICEF and the UN originally put in these amazing expensive wells years ago. Then they left and the wells broke. Nobody there knew how to fix them so they became useless. We fixed them and hopefully created a circle that can keep these wells going in perpetuity :)
You might think “how can I help”. The thing is, you’ve already helped more than you know. We have only been able to do all of this because of the tremendous loyalty and support that you’ve given us. You are responsible for these wells as much as we are. We all did this together. As Desmond Tutu said “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world”. On behalf of everyone at RAW and all the thousands of people you have helped THANK YOU FOR RAWKING!!!
