R&W supports AquAid in Installing Third Elephant Pump in Zimbabwe
R&W is very proud to announce that as a direct result of our use of AquAid water coolers, we’ve donated another Elephant Water Pumps in Zimbabwe, bringing our total to three.
Founded by AquAid in 2010, the mission of the Africa Trust is to bring sustainable solutions to poverty in Africa. With every water cooler and bottle of water we use from AquAid a donation is made on our behalf to The Africa Trust. This is then used to directly build fresh drinking water wells in areas in Africa where it’s needed the most, like in schools and villages.
Elephant Pumps eliminate many diseases (e.g. dysentery), and one alone can easily provide safe drinking water for upwards of 300 people, who before would most likely need to walk for miles to retrieve water in buckets or containers. And as the pumps are built using materials and parts that can easily be repaired or replaced locally, it means that they’ll be able to produce potable water for decades.
So stay hydrated and continue to help save lives in Africa.
