Kannaland Municipality in the Western Cape is the latest Municipality to request for water aid from charity organization Gift of givers.
Calitzdorp and Ladismith belong to this Municipality with an estimated 14 000 people living there. The Kannaland municipality requested assistance for 3000 households, citing problems in sourcing drinking water in the area due to drought and dry weather conditions.
Gift of Givers Chief Executive Imtiaz Sooliman said “Gift of the Givers has already packed trucks with bottled water to deliver this coming week to the areas mentioned in the letter. Many corporations have once again asked us to collect tonnes of bottled water from next week to respond to the various severely drought-affected areas in the Western Cape.”
