Supporting AquAid Africa

We were delighted to receive feedback this week from the team at AquAid Africa charity, who wanted to highlight the positive impact that Fitzgerald has made in supporting the AquAid programme.

As part of our commitment to environmental and social sustainability Fitzgerald got involved with the charity a number of years ago to support them, whereby each water cooler that we procure enables the charity to subsequently install water wells (referred to as Elephant Pumps) in Africa.

Fern Shaw from AquAid wrote, ‘We‘ve been delighted with the fantastic response from you and based on this outcome, we have been able to build a further one hundred Elephant Pumps in Africa. This means that a hundred communities and villages now have safe, clean drinking water’.

Founded in 2010, the Africa Trust’s mission is to bring sustainable solutions to poverty and one of the most effective ways to end the cycle of poverty is to empower a community to care for itself, this includes providing access to clean productive water and decent sanitation. To date the charity have built more than 5,000 water pumps in communities across Africa, bringing life-giving water to thousands of people every day.
