Proof that heroes wear many faces and not all of them wear capes!

Reading progress

Here’s proof that heroes wear many faces and not all of them wear capes! When we were left without running water yesterday, it wasn’t Aquaman who answered our call for help, it was the everyday heroes among us!

From homes across the city, containers of all shapes and sizes holding much needed water flooded in. Some wielded their powers of creativity, using services like Uber Eats and Checker Sixty60 to deliver water donations right to our doorstep! 🚚

Others, like the Kirstenhof Community, joined forces, fetching and carrying water to a designated spot to be loaded and driven directly to our door. But the heroics didn’t stop there! Pick n Pay Plumstead arrived with 200 litres of bottled water – and that while bottled water was in high retail demand! And then, a truck and bowser rolled in, delivering 2500L of precious drinking water directly into one of our water storage tanks!

But wait, there’s more!

Cash donations streamed in too, to help us cover the unexpected costs incurred in managing the crisis. We sincerely appreciate each and every donation in every shape and form!

Thank you, heroes, for reminding us that kindness and compassion are the greatest superpowers of all.
