Wells and Health When you live far away from a clean supply, getting  water for washing or cooking can mean a long trek to the nearest water-hole, carrying a bucket or other container..In Mara, women and children can spend many hours each day on this back-breaking task , and the water they bring back is often polluted by animals that use the same supply. We have provided wells with clean water, freeing up time for the women and allowing children to study.

MARA LINK

The Anglesey Group of Parishes has formed a link with the people of the Anglican  diocese of Mara in Tanzania.

Most of the population lives in rural villages, surviving through subsistence farming and their welfare is very susceptible to drought and crop diseases.
