#OperationHydrate expands efforts, moves to QwaQwa
The water supply initiative is working towards supplying water to communities affected by the drought.
JOHANNESBURG - A coalition of private companies and individuals, who form part of the Operation Hydrate SA Initiative, say they've received notice of other areas across the Free State and outside the province that have been left completely dry from the drought.
Operation Hydrate is working towards supplying 1 million litres of water to affected communities and members of the public have been urged to continue making donations as the NGO attempts to reach as many affected as possible.
Coordinator Yaseen Theba says residents in parts of the North West have also started calling for assistance.
He says today the organisation will move to QwaQwa in the Free State to help communities there.
"Areas like Swartruggens, just north of Rustenburg we got reports that there's a major situation in Ixopo. We have started mobilising teams that will distribute in other areas. At this stage we're planning to start in QwaQwa, where there's been absolutely no water for the past week."
