South Africa: An interdenominational prayer session for rain was held in New Brighton, this time in the famous New Brighton Square.
As the city continues to battle one of its worst droughts in history, it is anticipated that about 40% of the City will experience dry taps by the end of June 2022.
Although New Brighton is unlikely to be affected, we need support across the bay. It is important that those who are unaffected stand in solidarity with everyone in the Bay.
Residents are encouraged to conserve water in order to enable the municipality to move enough water to affected areas.
If a water crisis is not averted, jobs, industry, and the economy will be affected.
Together with the national government, the business chamber, and nongovernmental organizations, the Metro is working to avert a humanitarian crisis.
The City has prioritized infrastructure upgrades, drilling boreholes, and accelerating water leak repair as drought mitigation measures.
Residents are encouraged to report acts of vandalism to municipal infrastructure and to continue praying for massive rains to fill our dams.
