Following in Betsy King’s mission to bring water to some of the most impoverished parts of the world, a group of LPGA Tour players spent some of the holiday season in Africa. In a similar trip to one back in 2006, the golfers spent four days helping out in rural African communities.
LPGA Tour players Cheyenne Woods, Kendall Dye, Amy Anderson and Kristy McPherson travelled to Zambia alongside King, a World Golf Hall of Famer. During their visit, they were able to see first-hand the effect of the wells built using the money that they helped to raise.
“You go to a country and you think you are never going to go back, but when I was here a year ago I was so moved by the heart of the Rwandan people I went home determined to do all I could to help,” King explained in 2006, following her trip to Rwanda when Golf Fore Africa raised funds for water and opened a clinic.
