As trustee for the WellWishers Trust, I want to thank the good citizens of the Byron Shire (and beyond) for their generosity in donating enough money to build a well for a village, enabling about 300 women, men and children to enjoy clean, healthy water for the first time in their lives. And nearly $2,000 has been raised towards a second well!

This would not have been possible without the driving force of local yoga teacher extraordinaire, Diana Ewing, plus the energy of pupils and staff of Mullumbimby High School. Thank you so much.

You can donate to this life-saving cause through Diana at the Yellow Church Yoga Centre or through www.wellwishersethiopia.com.

Ross Allan, Myocum
