Congratulations Patrick, great news on the fundraising success.

Come on, let’s get this done.

Donate if you can. Deadline midnight tonight 12am. These guys are close to the finishing line so please help if possible.

Great cause Serena!

Good luck!

A huge thank you to everybody who has donated our crowd funding campaign so far. The response has been fantastic. We are doing well at nearly 50% of our total but are already into the second half of the campaign and so cannot be complacent. Please keep spreading the word to anybody you know who might be interested! Also, somebody asked me for clarification about how the matching works. The GCRF fund matches every pound that is donated as we do along, up to £25,000, so if you donate £50 the total will jump by £100. While Gift Aid portion of this is not matched, we will get the Gift Aid it so please tick the box if you are a UK tax payer.

I love to support a project that uses simple smart phone technology and local training schemes to create a practical , on the ground time saving repair solutions which must save 1000s of lives . Well done professor Patrick and your team . Saw this on the BBC local news today

Pleased to support such a worthwhile project.

Great idea: simple but far-reaching consequences!

If possible, i would like a different name on the water pump.

Great use of modern technology to solve an important problem for Africa. Look forward to hearing more about predicting failures, analysing usage, etc. Good luck. What about detecting leaks one pipes ?

Would have been happy to contribute more, but the "More than £500 seemed to take only £500. Can I contribute more later?

Great to see this over 25% towards the target, 25% of the way through!

Simple but inspirational idea. I cannot imagine having to walk more than a few metres for safe, clean water and feel others shouldn’t be put at risk over a resource so fundamental for life.

All the best in bringing the technology into use for improving livelihood on the continent!

Please support this! Think of yourself as an investor not a donator, this kind of tech could impact all our countries

So great to see fresh design solve a problem !

Fingers crossed you reach your target !!

Really happy to support this great project!
