The African Wrench Enables People to Access the Beneficial Acacia Gum

Where obtaining expensive medical treatments for impoverished villages can be a difficult process, ideas like the African Wrench provide some hope that more accessible solutions to illnesses exist. Diarrhea is a common cause of death in young children from Southeast Asia and Africa, but a cure can be found nearby. It just isn't very convenient.

Thankfully, this tree tap would enable its user to easily penetrate tough arboreal bark as a means to acquire the valuable cure of Acacia Senegal extract. A firm whack against the tree would allow the metal nozzle of the African Wrench to bore through the outer layers of the timber and into the precious source. With one of these per village, people could be more easily treated from the continuously trickling source of the life-saving gum.
