Earlier this year, we partnered with Water for Africa for the first-ever Watering Day.

Thanks to the generous donations from our 98five family, we were able to provide clean and safe drinking water for over 40 000 people! Morro was so moved by the success of Watering Day that he and his family moved to Tanzania for 3 months. It was a life-changing experience being able to see the wells be installed. “It is literally changing lives by fixing one well at a time. Seeing that up close and personal seeing the old mothers, the families standing around dancing when a well goes in. That was hugely impactful for me, the wife and the kids.”

There is a whole lot of hopelessness around the world at the moment. It just seems to be an endless feed of negativity. But there is a whole lot of people out there making a difference and 98five is one of those places that puts a smile on your face and keeps the positivity.”
