Raising funds to provide clean drinking water

Who we are

Friends of Mithuluni is a small charity  founded in 2009 to help the villagers of Mithuluni in the Eastern Province of Kenya.

“My family from Brackley, Northamptonshire visited my husband’s family in Kenya and was shocked to see how deprived the villagers are from everyday amenities that we all take for granted here in the UK. We then took it upon ourselves to make it our mission to provide clean drinking water within the community and support the development of the village.”

Who Are We

About Mithluni Village

Mithulini is located in the Eastern Province of Kenya with an estimated population of 2,500.   There is one river which runs on the outskirts of the village providing water for all the community.  

Every year the river runs dry between May and October. To survive, individuals have to dig the river bed to obtain water which then has to be sterilised.   Once the water has been collected, villagers have a one and a half hour walk back home.

The water is transported from the river in containers carried by donkeys or people.
