Doc Hendley is the founder and international president of Wine To Water; a 501(c)(3) international aid organization focused on providing clean water to people in need around the world.
In 2003, Doc dreamed up the concept of the organization while bartending and playing music in nightclubs around Raleigh, North Carolina. The first fundraiser was held in January of 2004, and by August of that year Doc was living in Darfur, Sudan installing water systems for victims of the government supported genocide. When he returned home in August of 2005, the haunting memories of what he had seen in Darfur drove Doc to continue building the organization he started two years earlier.
Since 2004, Wine to Water has provided over 250,000 people with clean water, installed over five-hundred wells, and distributed over 25,000 filters. There is no life without water.
