Safe drinking water for rural communities

On 20 April 2012, the Thebe Foundation – in association with the Bongi Ngema–Zuma Foundation – was able to fulfill a long-held promise to His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini to provide a rural community on the Nkunzana River in northern KZN with safe drinking water, thanks to  leading-edge technology provided by Headstream Water Holdings (Pty) Limited, an associate of Thebe’s Power and Infrastructure division. The community currently draws its water from the Nkunzana River which practice exposes them to many waterborne diseases. As part of the initiative, the Foundation, in partnership with FX Africa, gifted over 100 Hippo Roller drums for water collection and over 160 Ceramic Candle Filter (CCF) units to render the water safe for drinking without having to boil it or add any chemicals. The filtration system is seen as an interim solution to safe drinking water provision challenge facing Nkunzana, and has been independently tested to meet the required drinking water standards in South Africa.
