Annual documents

Our audited accounts for the year ended 30 June 2020 are available here. Our annual income of $282,000 involved admin costs of less than 1%. We report annually to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission - acnc.gov.au - where you can find also our report. We have been pleased to continue to minimize our reserves, and last financial year sent $394,890 to Ethiopia for our village water supply program.

Our 2020 and 2021 programs

Our program in 2020 focused on two regions in Ethiopia. The main program was with the Relief Society of Tigray (REST) in northern Ethiopia. The program of construction of wells for 7200 people in 40 villages was interrupted in November when conflict broke out between the Tigray Regional administration on one side and the Ethiopian and Eritrean armies and Amhara militia on the other. Roughly half of our wells were completed, the rest expected completion by the end of December. The Eritrean army in particular has engaged in killing and raping and wholesale looting and damage of crops, houses, health facilities, factories, schools and water supplies. The Eritreans are now under intense international pressure to leave and allow for some rebuilding to occur.

REST has also been the recipient of a major food donation from the US Government.

WellWishers Trustees have agreed to initially fund the urgent restoration of wells in 80 villages. We expect this will be our focus in Tigray for some months. Our supporters have responded generously to our appeal for funds. Thank you everyone.

Now we can only hope for, and work toward, peace and the restoration of the physical and political capacity for people to get on with their lives. To see a summary of the rehabilitation program click here.
