Petronella from Zambia using her community's well and rope pump

Petronella's village in Zambia is in a remote area where spare mechanical parts would normally be tricky to track down. Rather ingeniously this rope pump was built in her village with recycled parts, which are easy to find in the local area, meaning Petronella and her whole community have a sustainable solution to sanitation and safe water.

And there's more good news... since the rope pump and well were installed in the village, everyone can now drink and wash their hands with safe, clean water, so there is less disease and sickness!
