Bottling company assists Ntuzuma flood victims

Bottling company aQuellé is delivering water and mineral drinks to traumatised families in Ntuzuma informal settlement in eThekwini, KwaZulu-Natal which is facing a severe water shortage as a result of flood damage to water infrastructure and contamination of rivers.

More than 40% of the settlement’s population is made up of young children. Many have lost family members through drownings and accidents, homes have been destroyed and roads have been washed away, making it difficult to reach the area.

A damaged road and broken water pipes are a testimony to the destructive power of rain and flooding in Ntuzuma, eThekwini

aQuellé , which is owned by KwaSizabantu Mission, is no stranger to helping out during and after disasters, having delivered tons of water and donated to disaster relief projects around the country. They will be supporting more flood-hit communities over the next few days and will also provide relief to police, rescue teams and charities in the area.

Gladson Songelwa from aQuellé was on the ground at Ntuzuma and said: “We will assist as best we can. We are privileged to be able to help our community in this way. Many have lost loved ones and everything they own and the need is huge. Water is a fundamental commodity and we hope that we can make a difference to these families.”
