Police collect water for drought areas

2016-02-09 06:00

The Cape Town Central police station is collecting donations of water to help drought-stricken communities.

The station is encouraging residents to join this drive for donations, says spokesperson Captain Ezra October.

“I think we all have a duty to make a difference to answer the call to give water for our communities who are without water,” he says.

The collected water will be handed over to a non-profit organisation for distribution, October says.

Although no target has been set, the officers and staff of the station hope the community will join the drive and be generous in their donations, October says.

Community members can drop off donations of bottled water at the Devil’s Peak/ Vredehoek neighbourhood watch office at the Good Hope Seminary Junior School or at the Oranjekloof/ Higgovale neighbourhood watch office on the corner of Camp and Kloof streets.V Call the Cape Town Central police station for more information on 021 467 6351.
