XCMG Completes Clean Water Project for 20 Schools in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

In a joint effort to build clean water facilities for schools in the Ethiopian capital, XCMG  together with 17 charitable suppliers, have donated and constructed 20 water purification systems for 20 public schools in Addis Ababa, which have now been put into operation.

Between 2019 and 2021, with the support of XCMG and partner suppliers, a total of 23 ultrafiltration systems, 157 drinking stations, and 152 handwashing stations have been successfully installed in Addis Ababa. The project will benefit more than 23,000 school children in the capital.

To better solve clean drinking water problems in Ethiopia, XCMG and China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) launched the water cellar project for rural Ethiopian families as early as 2016 and have built 121 water cellars in two arid regions that collect and store rainwater during the rainy season and provide to the villagers in the dry season after filtering. In 2019, XCMG launched the school water purification project with the goal of providing clean water for drinking and sanitation in schools.
