The borehole helped, but funding is needed to save town from day zero


DEAR CAPE TOWN – More money is needed to drill additional boreholes in a bid to save the drought-stricken Beaufort West from day zero, but there is enough to take residents of the Karoo town through the festive season.

This was said by the humanitarian organisation Gift of the Givers Foundation, whose R6 million borehole project could not manage to yield the intended one million litres of water a day.

This amount of water was needed to make up for the same quantity that has been flowing into the system from the now completely dry Gamka Dam, which is the town’s main water source.
