Hello I am Mohamed, a tribal silversmith who travels back and forth from Africa to the UK, selling and promoting my village's amazing silver jewellery and crafts. I was hoping to raise enough funds to finish paying for the well in my village. Due to poor water (we live in a drought area) my wife and two year old child died (see picture of Djbrilla) and I didnt want any more children to die for lack of a decent well. We made the new well ourselves with a long extention from the supplier but we still need to pay for the materials. 

After a poor Autumn of sales I returned home to Africa to a furious supplier who has held out for two years whilst I tried to make enough from UK sales to pay him. We do not have NGO help in the village. There is no electricity. We live a basic life. This is a grass roots appeal for basic needs to be met. No office or admin to pay, just people doing it for themselves. Please donate. A whole village will be grateful. 

There are no tourists in the region due to instability and trade there now is nil. Once it was a thriving tourist area with trips into the desert.  please see my website http://mohamedahnou.weebly.com this shows where the money is going, other support I have had and shows a snapshot of village life.
