WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BEDOUINS !
I have been helping Bedouins for 10 years . Especially now that they found themselves on the verge of hunger .
The lack of tourists worsened the hard situation of these people . For a few years there was no rain in the desert . Many Bedouins had to sell animals , because there was no food for them . Many animals died of starvation and diseases ( inculuding 4 goats that I had bought one and half years ago )
However the biggest problem with Bedouins is lack of water .
In May 2017 I built the well in Nuweiba , South Sinai , that supplies water to 4 houses , that is about 30 people, adults , children and animals . The well waters small garden . Having water improved quality of their life.
The well was created in the area rich in ground water.
140 km to the south of Peninsula are about 50 people in Bedouins settlement there is no ground water at all. People bring water for households and animals from my well in Nuweiba ( 140 km away ). To find drinking water they are going straight to source in the desert , 120 km away ( water from my well is slighty salted )
Our dream , my and theirs - is to dig a well on 1 hectare plot near Nuweiba .A garden thet will grow and then feed people and animals and will also bring a little income for them . They will have their own water and garden.
This is part of my dream . The second part is the transfer of these people together with animals they belonging to the plot with a well and garden . Bedouins are people of desert. They build tents , build houses with just about anything . With support from family , they will build a new , better life , close to family , water and garden. They are wonderful people , peaceful , living in harmony with the world and I really want they to be able to have this well .
This is a real dream but dreams need help. I'm alone and I need help to raise money for this project . I have never ask anyone for help. All my help for Bedouins is funded from my hard earned money .
My funding target is £ 10,000. This is what I will do with money :
connect electricity , purchase of: engine, cement , wire reinforcement, wire fence , fence poles,water distribution pipes,seedlings, to dig a well , assembly soil treatment for circulation,clean area after digging, food and drinks for workers , transportations of workers to the construction site.
Please , help me realize my dream about the WELL ! Let's all help Bedouins give these well ! Please , visit my website and get to know the whole story. Thank you !
