Fairness Worldwide

In addition to seeking fairness in UK water supply provision, FWC has been set-up as a not-for-profit organisation which draws on volunteered time. This enables FWC to financially support charities, such as Pump Aid, who work internationally to give communities fairer access to safe water and sanitation. Pump Aid install sustainable Elephant Pumps and for every village where these are installed there are more children in school, fewer people with preventable water-related illness and more economic opportunities. The holistic services Pump Aid provides ensure that the water pump, once installed, is maintained sustainably and managed by the local community. According to a 2011 report diarrhoea is the third largest cause of death among adults in Malawi with unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene being the main causes of diarrhoea. FWC is doing what it can to help address the situation. variety of activities).

The amount given covers the cost of site identification and survey along with working with the local community to train them in hygiene practices and constructing the pump itself.

Stefan Allesch-Taylor, Chairman of Pump Aid, says "it is only with the generous support of donors like Fair Water Connections that we have been able to provide over 8,000 of the poorest communities in sub-Saharan Africa with access to clean, safe water. But we have only just began. Together we will continue to work towards our goal of ending water poverty in rural Malawi once and for all". Link to more information about the work of Pump Aid.
