At Lehmans Drift Primary School the principal told us that they had been operating for years without piped water and were reliant on rainwater and the kids bringing bottled water from home. Though they had an electrical pump it had been broken for many years and they could not afford to mend it. Also the electricity supply was very unreliable. They felt that a PlayPump would be the answer to their struggles and provide them with much needed water.
The children threw themselves on the PlayPump the moment they were allowed to!
The tap was upgraded, new HDPE pipes were laid, the forcehead seal was replaced and the tank cleaned out.
The school, with over 200 pupils has no other source of reliable water and is very dependent on the PlayPump for their water needs.
Maintenance of our PlayPumps is very important. Some of them are 20 years or older, still providing water and very needed by the schools and communities. Please help us continue with this work.
