Since 1998 Pump Aid has worked in Zimbabwe, Liberia and Malawi and delivered over 9,500 Elephant Pump water projects, transforming the lives of more than one million people.
Pump Aid exists today to relieve the hardship and suffering of rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa, by improving the availability and quality of water for domestic consumption and productive uses.
Currently many rural communities are forced to drink water from rivers, lakes and open, unprotected wells, where the water is left vulnerable to contamination from waterborne diseases and is often many kilometres from home.
Pump Aid strives to help rural community’s access clean water, which exists as little as 2-3 metres underground in some areas. This is done through the delivery of affordable, appropriate and sustainable technologies that meet the demands of the communities we work in.
