Water Assist Campaign [REPORT]

Date / Duration :Â 08 January 2016 to 24 February 2016
TOTAL FUNDS:Â 40,000.00 ZAR to Salaamedia / Salaam Foundation (Borehole) TOTAL WATER: 25,550 litres to Gift Of Givers Foundation

The South African Weather Service announced that 2015 was the driest year on record with no sign of abating. Those records date back to 1904. Government has declared Mpumalanga, Limpopo, North West and the Free State as disaster areas due to no water, KwaZulu Natal being the hardest hit by the drought. The country’s water storage is under pressure. Some parts of the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, and Western Cape are severely affected as well. Areas like Marico, south of Durban have recorded temperatures at 45C, highest it has ever been. With no rain, many parts of the country remain dry which spells trouble for farmers. 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, KwaZulu Natal and Kokstad.

COH ran the Water Assist Campaign from 08 January 2016 to 24 February 2016 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 (Northern KwaZulu Natal) Lennoxton Primary and Islamic College Newcastle also worked hard in donating almost 2,000 litres collectively. A big thank you to Arshad Osman,

CEO of Arctic Amanzi in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal who made the purchase of 5 litre water bottles at a very reasonable price on condition it was 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.

Over 2 billion people – almost one-third of the world’s population – are living in countries with absolute water scarcity with many in South Africa in dire necessity of this most important resource. A borehole is great way to provide a sustainable water supply to dry areas. It is an answer for many rural South Africans having to walk miles with buckets on their heads for a few litres. Opening a tap is something we take for granted, yet a help a cup of water that we let down the drain while brushing our teeth can be a means of life and death for many. It was during this time that COH liased with Salaamedia (Salaam Foundation) regarding the water crisis. Funds were raised and donated to Salaamedia’s Borehole Project, viz Maokeng Primary School, Modimolle in Limpopo Province, South Africa. We hope to continue in drilling such boreholes to benefit many.
