    Funded on Thursday, 16th June 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    My name is Mario Mandaric. I'm a chef from Croatia. This year Forbes magazine listed me as one of 30 most influential people under the age of 30 in Europe.

    As my 30th birthday is getting closer i decided to do something big, so i got in touch with Amar Gader from Uganda.

    Approximately 20.2 million of Ugandans (44% of the population) only have access to streams, ponds and unprotected hand-dug wells as sources of drinking water. Human waste, soil sediments, fertilizers and mud all run into drinking water sources due to the widespread absence of proper toilets and showers.
    Amar leads "water wells Uganda" project. The project which is responsible for more than 200 wells so far, so i decided to join him in Uganda together with my wife and help with providing clean water to rural areas by digging water wells.

    A shallow well in Uganda generally costs between $5,000 and $7,000. A deep well can cost $8,000 or more, depending on the region.

    One well will be completely financed by us, but we need your help to build more.
    The goal is to build at least 5 wells

    2,696 children under 5 die a year from diarrhoea caused by dirty water.
    Help us reduce those numbers ❤️

      As you may head by now, this project grew pretty big. My wife and I went to Uganda, worked on the wells and got the price down. This page didn't work for us, but now thanks to our friend Jon Walsh, it's active again.
