Wine to Water, along with its 30-year-old founder Doc Hendley, has dug, repaired and sanitized drinking wells for 25,000 people in five developing countries.

Doc Hendley did not dream of dedicating his life to humanitarian efforts in developing countries. "When the idea came to me to start Wine to Water, the only real-world job experience I had was tending bar. So I started raising money to fight this water epidemic the best way I knew how - by pouring wine and playing music."

Hendley has taken immense personal risks, working in dozens of refugee camps installing water systems for victims of Darfurs government supported genocide. Often inside the UN's dangerous "no-go" zones, he distributed water or chlorine tablets to people with only plastic sheeting for shelter. Doc has worked to provide clean water and sanitation in many countries including Sudan, India, Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia, and most recently in Haiti.
