Water Assist Campaign

,

The drought in 2015 / 2016 took its toll in South Africa. COH among many other charity organisations began assisting. Rising to the occasion, the Water Assist Campaign 2015 was launched in order to assist Gift of Givers with water bottles for distribution in Zululand and Kokstad. It was during this time that COH liased with Salaamedia regarding the water crisis.

COH ran the Water Assist Campaign from 08 January 2016 to 24 February 2015 where a number of schools participated in the collection of 5 and 10 litre water bottles. Schools such as UJ Metropolitan Academy, Saxonwold Primary, Starschool Academy in Braamfontein, Nizamiye Midrand, Suffah Learning Institute, were amongst those in Johannesburg. Newcastle’s Lennoxton Primary and Islamic College Newcastle alone also worked hard in donating almost 2,000 litres collectively. A big thank you to Arshad Osman, CEO of Arctic Amanzi in Pietermaritzburg who made the purchase of 5 litre water bottles at a very reasonable price if donated to the Drought Relief with free delivery to the Gift of Givers Warehouse in Pietermaritzburg. 6,420 litres were purchased from Arctic Amanzi and delivered to Gift of Givers Warehouse in Pietermaritzburg.

Funds were raised and donated to Salaamedia’s Borehole Project, viz Maokeng Primary School, Modimolle in Limpopo Province.

TOTAL FUNDS: 40,000.00 ZAR to Salaamedia (Borehole Project)

TOTAL WATER: 25,550 litres to Gift Of Givers
