Gqeberha schools grateful to Ford and Gift of the Givers for the gift of water

In similar news, the Nelson Mandela Bay metro remains hard hit by a crippling drought that is currently in its eighth year, but several local schools and thousands of learners in Gqeberha were thrown a crucial lifeline last year with the installation of boreholes, along with much-needed plumbing repairs and upgrades, conducted by Gift of the Givers Foundation and funded by Ford South Africa.

While much of the country is experiencing heavy rain and even floods in several areas, Nelson Mandela Bay has experienced record low rainfall that saw the combined level of its supply dams drop as low as 9% towards the end of 2021, and is currently sitting at just 15% and falling once again.

In January 2022, most notably, the metro recorded its second-lowest rainfall in 122 years with only 6mm measured, the lowest being 5.5mm in 1983.
