Operation Hydrate is distributing water to communities devastated by the worst drought in over two decades.
JOHANNESBURG – As the country battles the worst drought in over two decades, Operation Hydrate says some communities in the Free State have resorted to drinking sewerage water. We appeal to the public to continue contributing in cash: Donations for water purchases : Operation Water ABSA 9314587739 #OperationHydrate
The NGO, together with Mango Airlines, Shoprite and Proudly South African, aims to distribute more than 1 million litres of drinking water to communities devastated by the dry spell.
Operation Hydrate says the situation on the ground is distressing as people and communities are desperate for drinking water.
While Mango Airlines has pledged over R500,000 towards the project and Shoprite also donating thousands of litres of water, Theba says more people need to get involved.
“We’re appealing to the public to continue donating cash and water. Every donor and volunteer truly embodies the spirit of Proudly South Africa with Ubuntu being at the heart of our relief operations.”
