Queueing at Springs in Cape Town
Visiting two springs in Cape Town was an eye opener for the Gift of the Givers teams. Once the water supply was cut to 50L per day on 1 Feb, in essence, Day Zero had been reached. The water restriction knows no race, religion, colour, class, culture or social status. Whether you came walking or in a German luxury vehicle you all stood in the same queue patiently waiting your turn to collect between 5-25L per person. Soon this scenario will have to be replicated at multiple points throughout the Western Cape to cater for the needs of four million people. The challenge is huge and our fellow South Africans need all the assistance we can offer through boreholes, spring or bottled water.
