THE drought-stricken community of Ikgomotseng and Soutpan in the Masilonyana Local Municipality received temporary relief in the form of water supplied by the South African Breweries (SAB) in the central region.

Last Wednesday (11/05), the company delivered a much-needed 20 000 litres of water to bring temporary relief to the drought-stricken community.

The generous effort continues the company’s mission to help drought-stricken communities in the wake of the severe drought that has crippled the country.

Water was distributed to the Ikgo­motseng Clinic, Kagisano Combined School, Thlabologo Day Care, the Thlabologo luncheon club for the elderly and Siesta Woonstelle.

Some of the water was also delivered to the Masilonyana municipal office for distribution to the rest of the community.

Pieter Mokgosi, the Masilonyana Municipality’s unit manager, said although the area still had some water, the water quality was not fit for human consumption. He added that the SAB Drought Relief Project would certainly make a massive difference in the lives of the Soutpan and Ikgomo­tseng communities.

“At South African Breweries Central Region, we are all about uplifting our communities and having impactful drives towards sustainable growth in these environments. Their well-being and health are a priority to us,” said Jacques Koekemoer, SAB central region general manager.

“Water scarcity has been a major concern throughout South Africa and the Free State is one of the areas that have been highly impacted by this drought. We will continue to be be committed to support our communities, especially in ominous matters such as are being experienced.

“We hope that this contribution will make a big difference in the communities of Soutpan and Ikgomotseng.”
