Fund twice as many water pumps this summer

Posted on: July 11, 2016

12 children under 5 die every day from a lack of access to safe water and proper toilets. Pump Aid’s rural pump building programme in Malawi is bringing clean safe water to some of the world’s most impoverished communities and saving children’s lives.

UK AID is funding 50% of every water pump Pump Aid installs. This means supporters can fund twice as many pumps by texting PUMP* to 70500 and giving £5 to help Pump Aid install water pumps in rural communities.

Michael Chuter, CEO Pump Aid, said “Supporters can benefit from knowing they are funding twice as many pumps, but, of course, the real beneficiaries are the communities which are now able to access clean, safe water. So far Pump Aid’s work has brought clean safe water to more than 1.35 million people. This latest programme will help us reach many more”

The programme is being supported by a range of our corporate supporters and we plan to announce partnerships throughout the summer and update on how many pumps donations have funded.

Supporters are being asked to double the value of their donation by texting PUMP* to 70500 and give £5 to save lives today.

*Pump Aid will receive 100% of your Text donation. You will be charged for one standard text message plus your donation.
