Stop and think about spending a day with no water. So much of life gets harder. Please read on.
World Vision SA is active in rural KwaZulu-Natal in five in-community programmes in Umvoti, Okhahlamba, uMzimkhulu, Ixopo and KwaMaphumulo in the drought-stricken districts. Assessments suggest that up to 500 000 people are being affected by the drought in the Word Vision SA areas of operation, which include about 125 000 children.
The KZN government has declared the drought-stricken province a disaster area and has made it clear that that assistance would be helpful as they strive to manage this serious crisis.
Health officials are warning of the high likelihood of an outbreak of diseases as a direct result of the drought, which may severely affect the health of children.
World Vision SA is working to bring drought relief to these people through our FLOW – for love of water – campaign.
We have infrastructure and systems in place in our areas of operation that enable us to effectively bring relief with projects such as the:
- Installation of water tanks and boreholes
- Supply of hand sanitisers
- Supply of dignity packs for young girls
- Provision of water purification
- Provision of disposable nappies.
Impossible without support
But to bring this level of drought relief to the area, we are in need of support – either through gifts in kind from corporates or funding from corporates or individuals.
