Wheels for Wells

Read Mission Statement

We are 5 students who plan to bike from London to Amsterdam (125 miles/200km) to raise money for charity:water to build a well. We expect the journey to take us 3 days, and we will be leaving in just a week!

A well will provide clean water for a whole village, and means fewer people will suffer from easily preventable diseases, and more children will have the time to go to school as they will not need to spend all day walking to fetch water. Please help us to raise our goal of $5,000 (about £3,500) by donating a little. Anything you can give will really be appreciated.

Thank you!

Charlotte Meakin, Lizzy Morland, May Llyn Ong, Elizabeth Onstwedder and Tianshen Rong.

This campaign brought clean water to Tahtay Bejerawi Community, Ethiopia and 1 other project.

Learn about the water crisis

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
