Clean water well installed in Africa thanks to The Bridge (East Midlands) and AquAid
At The Bridge (East Midlands), we are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the workday, to continue helping vulnerable local people. We also recognise the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility; as a result, we invested in a Water Cooler from AquAid.
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves outside of our usual work. With each purchase, an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust.
These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf, providing a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
The Bridge (East Midlands) name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia, and have donated in excess of £15 million to charity.Back To Latest News
