Incare is delighted to announce that the Incare Elephant Pump is complete and up and running. AquAid formed a charity called The Africa Trust and the Trust is responsible for building water wells or ‘Elephant Pumps’. The Africa Trust has now built more than 50,000 Elephant Pumps throughout Africa and has provided more than 2 million people with safe drinking water.
The Pump is built using a modified design based on an ancient Chinese rope pulley system which is easy to repair and can be locally maintained. A Pump can last for more than 15 years.
We here in the UK take constant, clean running water too much for granted and its good news that The Africa Trust is making us all aware of the hardships faced by others far less fortunate.
