Assisting a drought-stricken community



When the Sarah Baartman District Municipality in the Eastern Cape, which includes drought-stricken Makhanda, was declared a local state of disaster area on 25 February, Engen heeded the community’s call for help by donating 100 Jojo tanks which will be used at borehole sites for filtration purposes and at other sites such as schools, hospitals, clinics, old age homes and other distribution points where the community has access to safe drinkable water through the use of these tanks. Reduced dam levels on the west and damaged equipment on the east has led to a shortfall of 13 Ml of water per day. The town had been without water for the better part of a month.
