Because they provide clean water to families without having to pay for water supply or electricity”. Says Jack Bosch, a community development worker in Vhembe district. However, to make water hand pumps more affordable for people, living conditions should be improved to get access to funding and grants by improving the economic standard in these areas.

Because it will help their product sell better by giving people affordable access to water, thus making demand go higher.” Water Hand Pumps also has their bad sides. There are many cases where people die because they don’t know how water pumps work. So they try to get water from the water pump but die.

Because they will get water from the water pump, which saves time doing chores like washing clothes etc. “Some households in South Africa don’t have private taps connecting them directly with the mains water supply,” says Jack Bosch. “This means that these people need to walk long distances to collect water, and often the water. They have to collect is dirty and polluted. This water may not be safe for consumption.” Due to water scarcity in these areas, many people die from water-related diseases like cholera and diarrhoea.
