Operation Hydrate was started by a group of volunteers as a response to the calls for water from Senekal. When Just Property Edenvale’s staff heard about this worthy initiative, they immediately jumped to action.
After contacting all the staff members, agents, tenants and landlords they knew, they put together a huge effort to raise money as well as collect bottles of water. The staff kept at it for a long time until they had met their set deadline, which was the 10th of March, 2016.
That same morning, they handed over all of the money they collected along with twenty 5-litre bottles of water. Their efforts had raised a grand total of R11 715.00, meaning that at a cost of R10.00 per 5-litre bottle of water, the money that they had raised equated to 1192 5-litre bottles of water. This made their total donation equal to 6060 litres of water for the Operation Hydrate Initiative.
It was a touching morning, as the caring members of Just Property Edenvale handed over the cheque of R11 715.00 to the Operation Hydrate Initiative. Next came the handover of twenty five-litre bottles of water.
The money donated will be used to buy bottles of water which will be distributed to the areas which are most in need, or it will be used to sponsor the digging of boreholes to create a more substantial solution to the water problems in the area.
Thank you to all the staff members and Just Property supporters who took part in this worthy project.
