To celebrate the World Water Day, the Cape Town International Convention Centre donated sanitizers to Yomelela Primary School in Site B in an effort to intensify save water campaign. About 10 sanitizer dispensers and 135 sachets of sanitizers were donated to the school.

The hand sanitizers were given to Grade R and One learners.

CTICC General Manager for Facilities and Operations, Craig Barrington said their aim is to educate learners about the importance of hygiene and saving water.

“Our mission is to focus on communities and ensuring that we uplift them. And educate learners to ensure that they must clean their hands before eating and wash their hands when they coming from toilet,” said Barrington.

He explained that they met the school through Ikhaya Lethemba.

“We were invited by Ikhaya Lethemba, our partners. We’ve been doing the campaign since the water crisis started. So they (Ikhaya Lethemba) asked us to come with assistance,” said Barrington.

Ikhaya Lethamba is a non-government organisation which is in partnership both CTICC and the school. They are doing a soup kitchen for senior citizens and have child support groups for vulnerable children.

Ikhaya Lethemba, Khayelitsha Project Manager Bobby Teichert said their aim is to encourage and maintain hygiene. “We understand that we have a shortage of water. But we encourage to save water but ensure that we keep our hands clean,”said Teichert.

School principal Zoliswa Mafilika described the campaign as a great initiative. “We feel great and also our children will be free from germs. It will cut the cost as our school is a no fee school,”said Mafilika.
