Water Crisis Update

We are okay and the College of Transfiguration has water tanks that have water in them for now. But a lot of people in our community are hurting. Here is a report that was on the news yesterday.

Some notes if you watch the report: The College of Transfiguration is on the west side of Makhanda/Grahamstown. Makana is the name of the municipality where Makhanda is. Please note that the mayor says that the date for the completion of the plans he hopes will resolve the crisis is 2020. At one point in the report, the date says 2018; it should be 2019. Gift of the Givers is an aid organization working here to provide help. You can read more about them and their work here.

The water where we live is currently on-again, off-again. Some areas of town report being without water now for 14 days.

What you can do: for now, keep praying for rain, wise management, success for planners and aid workers, relief for those who are suffering.

  1. I will pray and I wish you well. One question: do they have a way of catching the rain water off their roofs and storing it till it is ready to be used?

    1. Thank you, Peter. It’s a great idea and a lot of people are set up with the way to catch the rain and tanks to store it in. The College is not. It would be great if they could do that so they could capture the rain when it does fall.
