16th Annual Build A Well For Bono's Birthday

Wondering what to get Bono for his birthday? The African Well Fund has you covered for the 16th year with its Build A Well For Bono’s Birthday fundraiser. Bono's even said it's one of his favorite gifts.

This year's Build A Well For Bono's Birthday fundraiser launches today and will go through May 31.

The African Well Fund's Bono Birthday Well campaign will be partnering with The Humanity Project, an organization that has built a maternity clinic in Mloka, Tanzania. Only 44 percent of healthcare facilities that deliver babies have access to water, decent toilets and handwashing with soap. Of these, only 24 percent have a delivery room. The Humanity Project is looking to change that. According to the African Well Fund’s Diane Yoder, “The Humanity Project has made great strides in the development of a health center in this village, which will serve not just the village of Mloka but also the surrounding five villages who currently lack access to medical care. We are incredibly grateful to the AWF leadership team and donors for their support!”

Over $260,000 has been raised by U2 fans since 2003 in Bono’s honor to provide clean water and sanitation to over 80,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Mali, Senegal, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

After making a gift, don't forget to sign the birthday card. Members of the African Well Fund will handcraft a birthday card with everyone's well wishes (pun intended) to present to Bono later this year.
