Together SA – #SouthAfricansMustRise

“With no green in sight, drone footage shows the shocking reality of the drought in the Free State.”

For many South Africans the drought we are experiencing is just news headlines. For those living with the disastrous effects of no water, such as towns like Senekal in the Free State, it is a brutal reality. Farmland which was once green and fertile lies barren – scattered with the carcasses of dead live stock. There have been reports of people competing with animals over muddied water and at least one farmer has committed suicide.

sx5ljTogether SA is organising a convoy supplying water to the drought stricken town of Senekal and its surrounds on the 2nd of February. Please contact us should you be prepared to be part of this convoy.

We’re extremely grateful to Save Hyper, who have generously donated 1 500L of water. You can also purchase water from Save Hyper at a reduced cost to give your contribution to drought relief.

We’re challenging all businesses, schools and individuals to pull together. If you are in the KZN area please donate either 5 litres drinking water or bring water in containers and drop them off at our water bank at Save Hyper, 362 Victoria Rd, Pietermaritzburg. Please label the bottles as drinking water or other.

sx526Together SA, working with a team, are implementing long term solutions by using experts to drill boreholes, set up reservoirs and install Jojo tanks. For businesses, this is a great opportunity to benefit through your CSI spend.
