Keeping properly hydrated allows us to perform at our very best throughout the day. That’s why Cawarden has partnered with a leading watercooler supplier, AquAid, to give its employees access to naturally filtered water.
Cawarden’s mains-fed water coolers provide unlimited, high-quality filtered water on demand. But what makes the unique relationship with AquAid very special is that with every cup of AquAid water, Cawarden’s employees are helping those less fortunate – 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 – to collect clean, safe water from below ground.
One such pump is currently being built in Africa on Cawarden’s behalf to provide a much-needed source of clean, fresh drinking water for many. The pump will be built by local people using sustainable materials to ensure users can repair and service the pumps themselves.
Cawarden’s name will be proudly displayed on the new well and employees are looking forward to seeing photos in the near future and hearing how they are helping villagers in Africa.
One of the most effective ways to end the cycle of poverty is to empower a community to care for itself and this includes providing access to clean water to help sustainable development. To date, AquAid has built over 8,000 Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe to bring life-saving water to thousands of people every day. They have also donated more than £18 million to charity.
Cawarden is proud to put its name to this incredible initiative and is pleased to be helping to make a difference.
