In 1993 Dr. Richard Butcher and Vickie Butcher founded Water for Children Africa, inspired by the leadership of Rev. Leon Sullivan (Civil rights activist and humanitarian) at the 2ndAfrican-American Summit in Libreville, Gabon where Dr. Louis Sullivan initiated to create and support the goal to establish safe water throughout Africa.
Vickie Butcher had discovered her love for the African people and culture while traveling many times to Africa with her mother, Margaret Powell, on her quest to her research her African heritage.
She was touched by the humanitarian need for her people and didn’t hesitate to step up and devote efforts and time to bring help to the children that need help the most.
Over the last two decades we have established projects in the following countries: Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Liberia.
