About Myra's Wells

Myra's Wells is a Christian charity providing clean water in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Since 2006, over 160 boreholes with hand pumps fitted have been drilled, helping perhaps 250,000 people to have clean water. Not only is the water available for drinking, cooking and washing, it gives the people the water needed to grow crops year round and provides water for livestock to drink. Click here to see the up to date full list of wells that have been drilled.

All our workers, both in the UK and in Burkina Faso, are unpaid volunteers. All money received is used to drill wells. All admin expenses are paid for by the trustees.

We will acknowledge all gifts (as long as we have contact details) as soon as we receive the report from Wonderful - usually around the 14th of the following month.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
