It was a heartwarming experience to be hosted by the Swartruggens community in the North West this past Saturday! We were encouraged by the enthusiasm, energy and competence of Operation Hydrate Initiative SA who distributed drinking water and Hippo Rollers to the local community, supported by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Ahmed Kathrada Foundation, Yusuf Abramjee, North West FM, & others.
What brings us together in South Africa, more than anything else is when we take hands to find solutions for our problems simply because we love our country and all its people and want it to succeed. Operation Hydrate SA and the Hippo Water Roller provide solutions to address the urgent need for improved access to water while government attempts to provide proper infrastructure. We believe that there is great potential for us and other organisations with the same heart to work together more to effect real change and improve many more lives throughout South Africa.
