The Disgrace of Broken Pumps

31st January 2017:


This well and pump, with many more, were installed by others many years ago, but  they have failed to function for many years now. Despite numerous requests no help has come their way and they were asked to pay what they couldn’t afford.

Now they have a pump, which Wells for Zoë guarantee and they can look forward to a continuous supply of clean safe drinking water.

One of the greatest disgraces in Sub Saharan Africa is the thousands of broken unmaintained pumps, not fit for purpose in the first place, AND no maintenance plan.
