Sambia | April 2016 - December 2016 | Sambia Hilfe Konzelmann
Together with the Dr. Gerhard Konzelmann e.V. organisation, the Beurer-Foundation is supporting an aid project to build drinking fountains in Zambia in order to improve the living conditions in the eastern part of the country. In 2014 and 2015, there were 90 fountains in operation; the plan was to build between 20 and 30 new fountains in 2016. Each of the fountains is transported to the village community and the community is then responsible for maintenance costs. The fountains should supply approximately 100,000 people with sterile water.
There are also plans to build drinking fountains in the national park in North Luangwa to provide the rangers who watch over the local population of black rhinos with sufficient water. The Zoological Society in Frankfurt is overseeing this part of the project.
