Bring on the water! ― Help for the Massai
Just open the water tap and get some clean, fresh water – what is normal for us is unimaginable luxury in other parts of the world. In Africa, for example, people suffer from severe water shortage. This problem has however been solved for around 2,000 people in Northern Tanzania: Thanks to the project “Wells for the Massai” and a donation from pump specialist WILO SE, the Loltepes village, around 150 km south of the provincial capital Aruscha, is now supplied with water.
Mr. Peter Löser, Wilo regional representative in Northern Bavaria, handed over the pump donation worth several thousand Euros to Mr. Burkard Freitag, organiser of the project “Wells for the Massai” and he underlined: “As a globally active company caring about sustainability we are happy to support projects like the one organised by Burkard Freitag.” The wells, in which the pumps will operate, ensure water supply within a radius of approximately 30 kilometres around the village. The public water pipes which have been set up thanks to the project are a great help for the village’s habitants. Today there are even a school and a kindergarten in Loltepes.
