Beyoncé, Gucci to Build 80 Wells for Women and Children in Burundi


Queen Bey and Fashion designers, Gucci has pledged to dig a total 80 wells to help provide water for at least 120,000 women and children in land-locked Burundi, PEOPLE reports.
The music icon, who made this vow during a ‘World Water Day’ celebration event she had attended, said he resolve is in line with the visions of her ‘BEYGOOD4BURUNDI initiative’ launched in conjunction with UNICEF in 2017.
The initiative, the 36-year-old star said is committed to clean, safe drinking water to the landlocked East African nation.
This year on March 22, Queen Bey has partnered with Gucci and Chime for Change to bring water to the children of Burundi and prevent water-borne diseases.
Since the project started a total of 35 wells were dug for the people of Burundi to utilize.
Gucci's $1 million commitment to the project will help support UNICEF's goal to build 80 more wells and give 120,000 more people access to clean water.
BEYGOOD4BURUNDI is aiming to reach 475,000 children and families by 2020.
