From the superhero 10k straight to the water pumps in sub-Saharan Africa, Pump Aid looks back on another year with Spabreaks.com, and talk about all the wonderful things they have achieved in 2013!
What better way to end 2013 than to share some great news with our dearest supporters at Spabreaks.com, who have helped make this year an incredible one for Pump Aid and the communities with whom we work.
Thanks in part to your support, an additional 20,000 people across 3,200 communities in Malawi now have access to clean, safe water – that means more children in school and less lives lost to diarrhoea and other preventable illnesses. It also means more hope for a brighter future.
Our projects in Malawi now supply clean water to more than 400,000 women, men and children daily. Our core philosophy is ‘to help people help themselves.’ We have found that to deliver long-term sustainable impact, the best solutions directly involve the people who matter most; the communities. This is why our priority is to facilitate community ownership, to not only shape, but also drive, all aspects of Pump Aid’s water, sanitation and hygiene efforts.
We are also thrilled to announce that Pump Aid has recently been awarded a three-year grant from the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID). With the help of this DFID grant, we will be able to provide clean, safe water to 150,000 people, making 2014 a very promising year ahead for us and everyone at Spabreaks.com who supports our work.
Pump Aid would like to say a huge thank you to Spabreaks.com for their incredible dedication and fundraising commitment from the team this year. None of our achievements would be possible without the inspiration and commitment from our donors and supporters like Spabreaks.com, who help to make our life-changing work possible. We look forward to continuing our work together for what promises to be an incredible journey ahead in 2014.
