A portion of the proceeds from this listing will be sent to the world relief organization World Help. This water well will provide clean/usable water for a community of up to 1000 people! Thanks in advance for your contribution towards this cause. One charity, World Help, drills and installs water wells that provide clean/usable water for villages of up to 1,000 people per location in Africa.
You played a part in that! The other 5% will go to an orphanage call Nueva Esperanza Children's Home in Tijuana, Mexico. This orphanage cares for 30+ children and is run completely from donations from people. I have visited the orphanage 4 times over the past 10 years and it's a joy to see the children each time.
