A charitable foundation run by leading building services components supplier, Brymec, has teamed up with Fields of Life to build the first of many wells that will deliver a sustainable source of clean water for villages and communities in East Africa that currently have to walk for miles each day to collect water.
The Brymec Foundation was established to formally structure how it can fulfil one of the company’s core objectives – to help others. Throughout the past year, the company has organised events and promoted the foundation to support this cause.
Brymec donates regularly to charities including the British Red Cross, Barnados, The Salvation Army, British Heart Foundation and Chart and several members of staff give up spare time to provide relief aid around Europe.
Joe Morris, marketing co-ordinator at Brymec, said: “Helping others is one of our company’s core values and we’re used to being very proactive at work, so we constantly look for opportunities where we can offer our support. This first well is just the beginning of our involvement with Fields of Life, but we’re excited and committed to making a real difference.”
Fields of Life is a charity that collaborates with local communities in East Africa to bring about positive change through the provision of quality education, clean water, health promotion and other community-based projects.
