Supporting Communities in Africa
We have chosen to use water coolers supplied by AquAid and in doing so are helping to save the lives of many children in Africa. With every water cooler and bottle of water we buy from AquAid, a donation has been made on our behalf to The Africa Trust. These funds are used to directly build fresh drinking water Elephant Pumps in areas of Africa where it is needed the most, like in schools and villages.
Prince Charles, a patron for the St Andrews Medal, gave a personal recommendation towards this option of water extraction:
“Each project has had a direct and positive impact on people’s lives. While it is perhaps invidious to highlight just one of them, I believe a good example is the success of The Elephant Pump project. Based on a 2000-year-old Chinese technique for lifting water, The Elephant Pump is inexpensive, simple to make and repair and made from locally available materials which give users a greater sense of ownership. When more than a billion people live without access to clean drinking water in the world today, it is hard to imagine a better cause than this”.
