The global coronavirus pandemic had a devastating impact not only on the South African healthcare system, but also on its infrastructure growth during 2020. Despite these challenges, Franklin Wells for the World Foundation (FWWF) was able to accomplish the goal of providing access to clean, safe, and sustainable water and sanitation solutions within the remote communities of Sutherland in South Africa, Chikuluma, Malawi, and in Mongu, Zambia.
“The people of Sutherland’s Central Karoo area have experienced severe drought for over seven years,” states Attie Jonker, vice pesident, Commercial Group, South Africa at Franklin Electric. “The opportunity to partner with GOGF in giving water and some relief to those who have been gravely affected by the drought is gratifying for our organization. As we continue our mission of bringing clean water to the people in these communities, we are committed to restoring hope for the next generations.”
