Access to Clean, Safe Water

"TOGETHER WE PROVIDE ACCESS TO CLEAN, SAFE AND RELIABLE WATER ACROSS THE GLOBE - ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME."

We are all dependent on water for life… it’s the very necessary foundation for our growth and development. However, it is a scarce and dwindling resource in many areas of the world, and especially South and sub-Saharan Africa. A need exists to ensure people become increasingly responsible about saving and utilising water efficiently.

When disaster strikes, water takes on even greater importance, leading to our organisation having played a necessarily active role in assisting under-resourced communities secure access to safe, potable water and hygienic sanitation facilities, an undertaking against which we have delivered since the inception of Gift of the Givers.

From drilling boreholes and installing rainwater harvesting operations, to establishing purification systems and distributing bottled water, we have the flexibility to rapidly adapt to a community’s requirements, delivering water provision solutions which most appropriately ensure the sustainability of life.

With the water crisis in the Amathole District, Butterworth Hospital 🏥 is one of many establishments that are severely taking strain. Their main concern is not only clean drinking water for patients and staff, use of ablution facilities, cooking, patients showering, water for ICU, but also their landry that's piling up. They have a massive shortage of linen and might have to throw away the bulk of what they have as an infection prevention control as blood stain linen can spread infections. The hospital currently has 160 patients, and bed linen must be changed daily and in high care wards between intervals. We delivered 76 linen sheets that will cover 3 wards. Our drilling team is also busy connecting the borehole that we drilled to pump the water into the hospital's reservoir.To contribute towards our interventions visit:🌐 : www.giftofthegivers.org/make-a-difference📞 : 0800 786 911#GiftoftheGivers #makeadifference #forthegreatergood #disasterresponse #WaterProvision #sa #southafrica ...

📌Read: Water Crisis in Eastern Cape Intensifies. Striking municipal workers in multiple districts in the Eastern Cape has paralysed water supply to entire regions affecting communities, hospitals, clinics, schools, police stations and businesses. The number of calls to Gift of the Givers teams have been escalating since Friday, going through the roof in the past two days, in response to the strike which started two weeks ago. Apparently, vandalism has been a large contributor affecting water delivery. Messages of desperation abound from every quarter, with hospital CEO's sobbing, afraid they are going to lose patients, there's no water to perform procedures or wash linen, pillow cases, blankets, theatre drapes, pyjamas and gowns important for patient dignity, hygiene and the spread of infection; arrangements have been made to move critically ill patients to less compromised health facilities, a huge inconvenience given the major budget deficit within the EC Health Dept.Ward councillors in the Raymond Mhlaba District Municipality are desperate to stave off a crisis among ten thousand students at the University of Fort Hare with many suffering dehydration, weakness and diarrhoea. The threat of a major infective crisis within the entire student population and surrounds is very real. Schools, police stations, businesses and large scale communities are equally in crisis, no entity can function in the absence of life saving water.Gift of the Givers teams led by Muhammed Gangat have been worked off their feet delivering water from the early hours of the morning deep into the night, driven by the desperation of the masses and the overwhelming empathy of principals, medical and nursing managers, and caring leaders in institutions of social service. Gift of the Givers is urgently augmenting Muhammed's efforts diverting water tankers from Day Zero risk, Gqebera, to the affected districts, sending in borehole teams to various hospitals in the region where we proactively drilled boreholes in the last year including Fort Beaufort, Cala, Adelaide, Hewu, Sterkspruit, Butterworth, SS Gida and Tafalofefe Hospitals. Some of the boreholes here were malfunctioning, we corrected them in the last two days substantially increasing water yields. Two newly donated water tankers to Gift of the Givers from Redefine Properties in Cape Town will make their way to the man made water crisis in Eastern Cape in the next 48 hours. Superlink loads of bottled water as well as hospital linen and other supplies will be dispatched by our teams who are battling multiple challenges in the Eastern Cape responding to the floods in East London, staving off Day Zero in Gqebera, busy with water delivery in Makhanda and multiple areas in the Amethole District, and rolling out R25 million of a fortified nutritional eezee peanut paste to deep rural areas, in partnership with the dietitians of the health department, where hundreds of children have been dying from starvation and malnutrition.Practical support for the water crisis will be most welcome.
