BENEFITING: AFRICAN WELL FUND
From April 14th to May 31st the African Well Fund invites U2 fans and others who are inspired by Bono's tireless activism on behalf of Africa to donate to the 13th Annual Build a Well for Bono's Birthday fundraiser in honor of Bono's 55th birthday. This year's campaign will help fund a project in Senegal that will provide sustainable access to clean water. The project will improve access to clean water in 6 "Health Huts" serving 6,500 beneficiaries. The Health Huts serve as community health facilities in very rural areas. Your donation will help give the people in these areas the tools and training needed to improve public health in their communities.

The 12 previous campaigns have raised over $235,000 in Bono's honor to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects implemented by AWF partner Africare that are benefiting more than 73,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Mali, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
