We at Zeppelin Systems UK are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the workday. Sadly not everyone in the world has this luxury.
As a result, we recently decided to purchase our water for water coolers/dispensers from AquAid in Birmingham.
This has given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system.
One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much-needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
The Zeppelin name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquAid has built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity.
