TWO prayer days, including a session arranged by the Mighty Men Eastern Cape, will take place in the Kouga region this month to give thanks for the recent rain and pray for the ongoing drought to be broken.
Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks says the first prayer day will take place at the Kouga Dam at 09:00 on Friday, October 5.
Participants will include the municipality, Gamtoos Farmers’ Association, schools and churches.
The second prayer day, arranged by the Mighty Men Eastern Cape and the municipality, will take place on Saturday, October 13.
Set to take place at the Farm Mooi Uitsig, off the R102 between Jeffreys Bay and Mondplaas, the session will start at 09:00 and culminate in a bring and braai from noon.
Participants need to bring along their own meat, cold drinks, salads and camping chairs.
- With the combined level of the supply dams for Kouga and Nelson Mandela Bay standing at just above 50%, water restrictions remain in place across the Kouga region.
