The Kardia hand pump is made in Germany and is precision constructed for sustained, reliable performance in areas where there is little hand pump maintenance. Although expensive, children can easily use this hand pump to obtain a steady flow of water from depths greater than 30 meters. These factors makes this hand pump an ideal choice for use in large, remote villages and in crowded refugee camps.
