Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore, in collaboration with Global Peace Foundation Malaysia, held the inauguration of the Water for All project in Pahang on 14th April 2023. The event took place at Kampung Sungai Gayung in Pahang, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly-built solar water pump source at the village.
Mr Horst Wasel, Vice President Holding, SEA & Oceania says this Water for All project is a significant step towards ensuring that every person in the region has access to safe and clean drinking water, and it will go a long way in improving the health and well-being of the local communities.
Better Living in Pahang
For Joachim Bergström, Ambassador of Sweden, with access to water, other benefits will follow: not only better lives and physical health but also in the Improvement of mental health, the right to dignity, and other basic human rights.
The Water for All programme aims to provide sustainable solutions for water and sanitation, creating a positive impact on the health and well-being of communities worldwide.
This project in Pahang is an example of how the programme is fulfilling its mission by providing clean water and sanitation facilities to those who need it most.
Villages in the region lacked basic facilities such as proper bathrooms, piping, and washrooms, which put their health and safety at risk. However, rather than simply providing these facilities, the project focused on empowering the villagers by teaching them how to build and maintain the facilities themselves.

Mr Khalid Shaikh, General Manager – Compressor Technique for Atlas Copco Malaysia and Singapore the project helps empower the villagers by providing them with the necessary skills and knowledge to build and maintain essential facilities such as toilets, washrooms, and solar water pumps.
“By taking this approach, we not only provided them with access to clean water but also ensured that they could sustain these facilities for years to come. At Atlas Copco Malaysia, we believe that sustainable solutions require community empowerment, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to support initiatives that create a lasting positive impact in the communities where we operate.” he adds.
