Supporting access to clean drinking water in Africa

At Aquarius Population Health we understand the importance of keeping our team well hydrated to support their health and top performance throughout the day. As a result, we decided to invest in a water-cooler and water-heater from AquAid.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given Aquarius the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. With each purchase of a water cooler, AquAid makes an automatic donation to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. In May, one such pump was installed on our behalf in Manicaland, a province in the North-East highlands of Zimbabwe near the Mozambique boarder. The well is a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

To date, AquAid have built over 8,000 Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia, and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity.
