PlayPump provides clean drinking water in impoverished rural communities of SA

Roundabout Water Solutions is a charity organization with an endeavour to bring clean drinking water to rural communities by means of a children’s merry-go-round called a PlayPump.

They have over 900 of these PlayPumps at rural primary schools or communities around the country.

Sandra Hayes, Director at Roundabout Water Solutions SA explained how the PlayPump works and how goals are achieved.

First we identify a school with an existing borehole; we then test the water to make sure it is suitable for human consumption and then we put a PlayPump over the borehole.

The children will be having fun playing on it and at the same time pumping water.
