AquAid Water Pump Fitted in Africa
Carntyne have been providing AquAid watercoolers in its offices for over a decade. Our unique relationship with AquAid has given our company the opportunity to help those in need because with each purchase, an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust.
Using funds from AquAid partnerships, one initiative is to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. An Elephant Pump has recently been installed on our behalf, providing much-needed clean and fresh drinking water for many residents.
To date, AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe; and have donated in excess of £17 million to charity, helping bring clean water to over 2.9 million people.
