Water Aid


Blog Posted:7/30/2018 4:31:00 AM

Although Water Aid does good work I was really shocked to see a program of them building a well in Africa. Yes they built the well but then totally enclosed it so no animals could also use it. Soon elephants driven to desperation broke it down so they could drink.

Water Aid was oh dear all our work is destroyed instead of how can we avoid this happening. This sickened me obviously you also build a supply for the birds, bees and animals.

Why should we deny them water when it is mankind that has polluted our water sources in the first place. This company is heartless all they care about is people not caring about the bigger picture which is we need all of the above to keep life as we know it going. I did e-mail them on this subject and was basically told that they would not be addressing this issue.

Yet our government endorse them by adding money to their funds by matching denotations when we already have a massive national debt. Surely the money would be better spent in reducing it or putting it into policing or hospitals?

Thanks for letting us know Shadow such a shame Water aid can't look at the bigger picture regarding providing water for animals and sadly a lot of the money donated to 'charity' doesn't go to the places where it is intended , :-( hugs Jan xx

there are so many groups now asking for donations - I think the local, grassroots organizations are best (but even then one needs to research for trustworthiness and openness of their management!). If a foreign government is funding, you can be sure there is a hidden agenda! :)

Do not have faith in this system of things- society, money nor governments, you have to think a different way for better solutions, all the best !
