Whilst tea and endless espressos are the drinks of choice for the team at DG (apart from Holly who is a weirdo who doesn’t like hot drinks), we do try and stay hydrated with some good old H2O. As a result, we decided to invest in AquAid watercoolers for our office. Our relationship with AquAid has given us the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves – 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.
Digital Glue’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to sharing some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers with you in the near future.
To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity.
