In Africa, transmitters send an alert when a water pump is broken
Access to clean water is a perennial challenge in many parts of the world, but for those affected by the drought in east Africa, it’s particularly acute. Compounding the problem is the fact that roughly a third of all hand pumps in the region are typically broken at any given time, often taking weeks or months to get fixed. Enter mw4d, a new effort that’s using mobile technology to help get pumps fixed more quickly.
