Proteas and Cricket South Africa Support Gift of the Givers

Gift of the Givers Drought Relief Campaign has been expanding exponentially drawing interest and support from diverse sections of the South African public.  Today we have an interesting new partner.  The Proteas and Cricket South Africa have expressed a willingness to support the campaign encouraging all supporters arriving at Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein for today's first ODI between England and South Africa to bring a 5 litre bottle of water.  At some point predetermined by CSA select members of the Proteas team will do a symbolic handover of 5 litre bottled water at our vehicles which will be stationed at Gate 3.  Those who have not managed to purchase water can sponsor R10 per 5 litre bottle at the trucks.  Contributions are welcome for animal feed as we commence distribution of water and animal feed to small farmers in an attempt to save their animals and farms.  We have been busy with extensive drought relief programmes in the Free State.

A detailed report back on the extent of our drought intervention in several provinces in South Africa will be presented soon.  You are welcome to visit www.giftofthegivers.org and our Facebook page for daily updates.  Details specific for today's event at Mangaung Oval contact Badr 0832281298.
