CLEAN, pure water is an essential element to sustain good health. Since Greytown has been severely affected by the drought, Gift of the Givers has embarked on a water campaign were they are helping communities that are affected by water shortages.
On Wednesday afternoon, a truck from Gift of the Givers arrived at the Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre with 3 000 litres of bottled water. They also brought 124 packets of toiletries, 75kg of hot chocolate, 50kg white sugar, and other goodies which the children of the centre will benefit from.

Speaking on behalf of Gift of the Givers, Tracy Adkins, personal assistant of the operations manager, said: “It’s a great choice that Gift of the Givers chose Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre to benefit from this initiative, since there are 150 children aged from three to 19 in the centre’s care. We as an organisation do what we do with joy and love.”

Director Greytown Child and Youth Centre, Reverend Pieter Swanepoel said he was overwhelmed by the huge donation which showed there are many caring people willing to make a difference in the lives of others.
“We just praise God for providing for more than our needs every day. For almost two weeks there was no water from the municipal pipelines and this donation put smiles on the faces of many children.

We encourage everyone to take part in this great drive by purchasing five litres of still water at any Shoprite Checkers outlet and place it in the special area for this drive to continue to help other communities who need water.”
