Celebrating 20 years of WellWishers!

Ross Allan, WellWishers founder writes:

Twenty years ago this year, Marianne and I decided to fund the construction of two village water wells in Ethiopia through Community Aid Abroad, now Oxfam Australia.

The following year, we visited Tigray Province in Ethiopia for the first of many trips, a visit we'll never forget.

We were blown away with the benefits those villagers gained from those wells, in the short time after they were completed. So much so that when we arrived home, we put pressure on close friends to donate to the cause, allowing us to fund a further nine wells the following year.

This coincided with Oxfam Australia's decision to cease direct operations in the Horn of Africa and to coordinate its work with other Oxfams worldwide. Marianne and I were so impressed with the impact and sustainability of the water wells programme that we decided to take up the slack left by Oxfam Australia's withdrawal from the region. A tall ask.

Thus WellWishers was formed and fundraising commenced in a serious manner. Wells construction increased every year until we reached a high point of 124 wells in the year of our 10th Anniversary by which time just over 200,000 Tigrayans benefited from the generosity of over 1,000 donors.
