One of the biggest problems in Mali is lack of water. The climate is slowly becoming dryer than ever, and several large lakes and streams are drying up.
Growing use of the River Niger by communities upstream is meaning that many villages and small towns are left without any adequate supply of water for drinking, hygiene and irrigation.
Dams are being planned, which will help some communities, but not for many years.
Please help us to provide wells for families and communities in desperate need. A new well costs £1800. Many are needed.
"And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward." (Matthew 10 v42)
