AS part of its community outreach programme, the Regional Works Unit KZN of the South African National Defence Force visited Greytown last week handing out much appreciated water to Enhlalakahle residents.
Under the leadership of the Officer Commanding of RWU KZN, Captain (SAN) Solomon Mashigo, the unit established its community outreach project committee. Since then it has undertaken a number of outreach projects, from renovating a crèche at Adams Mission; making and donating furniture to needy families in Pongola and many other very worthwhile community projects. This year in March 2016, members working at RWU KZN donated water towards the East Coast Radio water drive to help the many in KZN affected by the severe drought. Mashigo then decided that RWU KZN must have their own water project and donated sealed 5lt water bottles towards the project.

One of the members working at RWU KZN told his congregation (Methodist Church, City Central Mission) about this initiative and church members donated a generous 1000 5 litre water. During December 2016, RWU KZN requested Army Support Base, Durban to supply a 10 000 litre water bunker. Together with the water bunker and 1 500 5l bottles, on Wednesday, 14 December the delegation from the South African National Defence Force, led by Mashigo from the Navy met with the Mayor Cllr Thami Ngubane and Ward 7 Councillor Vukani Sibisi to hand over the donation of bottled water to the most affected area of Enhlalakahle.
