Q Drum


South Africa

The idea of the Q Drum originated in response to the needs of rural people in Southern Africa who struggle conveying adequate quantities of potable water from a reliable source. A task generally bestowed on the women and children of each community. Many debilitating back neck and spine injuries are a result of women carrying heavy loads on their heads. Generally the load is limited at best to 15litres per container and therefore requires families to make more than one trip to fetch water each day. Q Drum addresses the problem of reducing the load yet increasing volume by rolling water in a cylindrical vessel.
