Simply Washrooms builds Elephant Pump

We’re delighted to be supporting our friends at AquAid by taking part in its well building initiative. 

With each purchase of an AquAid product, AquAid donates to its Africa Trust. This Trust is used to build wells in improvised communities across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia. Known as Elephant Pumps, the wells are a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system and provide essential clean drinking water to these communities.

Andrew Shelley, operations director Simply Washrooms, comments: “Our friends at AquAid are doing amazing work by bringing much needed clean drinking water to communities in desperate need. Having a well built in our name and being part of this journey is something we’re really proud of here at Simply Washrooms and we can’t wait to see the pictures of our Elephant Pump in use.”

To date AquAid, with the help of its customers, has built over 5,000 Elephant Pumps and helped bring much needed clean water to over 2.4 million people.
