Utilising the playful energy of children an innovative water pump, PlayPump, was especially designed to aid the Ntsoanatsatsi Educare Centre in Qwaqwa.
The unique pump is attached to a merry-go-round, which makes it easy to pump clean water.
The pump supplies water to a storage tank for immediate use by the centre in this town in the Free State currently facing a severe water crisis.
It is already operational following successful installation in August.
This is thanks to steel supplier Macsteel in collaboration with Roundabout Water Solutions (RWS). The pump forms part of the entities’ community investment and upliftment project.
