Subsequently, they are not able to provide for their livelihood. Another problem is the lack of access to safe, clean drinking water. Many people, especially children, get sick from contaminated water and have to spend the little money they have on medication. To help prevent this, water can be boiled but this process requires a lot of firewood. As a result, women and children spend all day gathering the wood and children are therefore unable to attend school.
The water crisis is very complex and has a massive impact on the lives of the villagers in those rural areas.
The Rain Tree Foundation aims to provide the village communities with sustainable access to a sufficient amount of water for their daily needs and to make it possible to conduct a successful cultivation of crops. We use hydraulic ram pumps from our competent partner Meribah Ram Pump for our projects because ram pumps have proven their reliability for more than 200 years.
They are extremely simple to use and maintain with just two moving parts and they don’t need an external source of fossil power. Whenever a water source is available in an area that is not completely flat, there is always a possibility to install a hydraulic ram pump.
