The folk at the African Well Fund are underway with their annual campaign to mark Bono's birthday next month.

This year fundraising will benefit a water, health and hygiene project in Liberia, a scheme administered by Africare, which will increase access to safe drinking water and improve sanitation and hygiene for up to 7,000 people.

A registered nonprofit, The African Well Fund was founded by an energetic bunch of U2 fans in 2002 and has now donated more than $700,000 to projects in Angola, Ethiopia, Uganda and Zimbabwe - including $143,000 through the Bono Birthday fundraisers

All donations to the African Well Fund go directly to Africare, one of the leading private,
non-profit, charitable organizations assisting Africa. The African Well Fund believes that
access to water is not merely a basic human need but a basic human right.
