Another hand pump being repaired.

Repairing other charities’ hand pumps for clean water.

The project to repair hand pumps continued over the Christmas  holidays, with another 5 put back into service. Some are difficult to repair, some are easy but nearly all are in rural locations difficult to reach. One of the 5 pumps repaired had been out of use for 7 years yet it was the only clean water source for 1500 people. It was a cheap, simple repair. We have taught the community the skills to maintain this pump, but why didn’t the original charity who installed the pump 8 years ago teach them how to maintain it? We want this pump to work forever and not just until the next breakdown.
