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.

This water treatment plant serves the west side and centre parts of the #EasternCape. In 2019, our team drilled 7 boreholes here so residents have a constant flow of water.

So Gift of the Givers must step in when we have a whole national government department responsible for this? This administration is the worst in our freedoms history. These people are not recognised by govt yet they clean up behind them

So we don't have water n our govt r worried about name changes . A bigger pandemic is anc not covid . Covid has a 94 percent recovery rate . Anc has a 98 percent destruction rate . N yet people vote for them for bein loyal for fytin apartheid. Sorry they fought for them selfs me n u are jus there of no worry to them .

Come election time ANC will be making false and empty promises to these poor people for their votes 🤬🤬

No water but concern about name changing....!!!😡

A disgraceful situation ! Shame on government 😢

I would love to know which chommie or family member will get the tenders for these changes 😡

Where is the government? Where are they? Changing names when there are criseses of much higher importance. 😭😭😭

Lance Ramoo

Eish we say shukaraan to Dr I Sooliman and his team whilst we have the ANC government changing names of places and airports haaibo I mean really?? Our so called President Cyril is just there can't make decisions on the future of this once beautiful country he can't even reprimand any of his or fire these looters thieves and corrupt minister's shame on you mr Buffalo and futher more he nominates the Cuban doctors for the Nobel peace prize you are a spineless man I must say Gift of the Givers has done far more than you ANC and yoll have been in office since 1996 what a joke yoll are i dare anyone that can show me what the government did for this country😠

Yet they will spend huge amounts of money RENAMING a city. Where is the sense in that decision when so many lives depend on decent living conditions. Mr. President and all your colleagues, you should hang your head in shame. You disappoint on every level.

Wasting time and money on new names ........😡😡😡😡😡

Working 18 hour shifts, our team has been assisting desperate residents in #Makhanda 📍 from early mornings to late at night.

Residents are often seen filling up water 💧 with all types of containers and utensils and then walking a distance to ensure their family has a supply to sustain them. People have also been arriving via donkeys, cars, and taxis at our #Ntsika borehole site for assistance.

Water 💧, a basic human need - but the most difficult to obtain in the #EasternCape 📍

The Eastern Cape Drought started in the year 2015 and was declared a “Disaster Area” in 2019. Since then our team has been providing relief to residents in the form of daily distributions, placing community #JoJoTanks in designated spots as well as drilling boreholes in permissible areas. However, the need for clean water is increasing drastically each day.

Wish we had someone looking after us here on the KZN South Coast. Some areas been weeks and months without water and no support from the UGU District Municipality. This is the link to the complaints page not monitored by them as they do not care for the community. www.facebook.com/groups/896384763753940/

Thank you for helping the community....it isn't your duty, but you do it regardless!
