SIYA KOLISI SHARES THE CARE AS VILLAGES GET CLEAN WATER

The Matsila village in the Venda district in Limpopo will be given a new lease on life when two boreholes sponsored by South African community endowment NGO, Awqaf SA through its Share the Care campaign, in partnership with the Siya Kolisi Foundation and Crescent of Hope, will be handed over to the community under the authority of the Matsila Royal Family.

Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, will be on hand at the official opening of the two new boreholes and will also be distributing over 1000 sanitising equipment donated by a local company.

Awqaf SA is an Islamic charity that uses a model of sustainability based on a core investment that cannot be sold or ceded. The investment’s profits are used to finance projects from education to publishing, to schools, small businesses and infrastructure.

Awqaf SA CEO, Zeinoul Cajee, said it was important that the villages would be getting easily accessible water in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, where regular handwashing had been advised by medical experts.

“Water is the source of life, and clean water goes a long way to good health for our poorest communities. We are excited that an icon in our lives, Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, has joined up with our Share the Care campaign to warm the hearts of our fellow South Africans in a time of crisis,” he said.

Chairman of Awqaf SA Haroon Kalla, who is spearheading the project, said that dignity was important for all in our society.

“We owe it to ourselves to give the best to the least advantaged as much as those who can afford it,” he said, adding that a simple thing such as a borehole had the massive potential of transforming lives and communities.
