SBS® Water Systems partnered with disaster response NGO Gift of the Givers, in rolling out drought relief solutions to areas affected by the national drought early in 2016. SBS® Water Systems (Pty) Ltd made three SBS Tanks® available for water storage (storage capacity of 112kl each) to the Free State towns of Lindley; Mamafubedu and Trompsburg. The donation valued at R750 000 included the installation and commissioning of the tanks on site. The installations were completed on 1 March 2016.
Says Brian Wilson, Sales and Marketing Manager: “South Africa is in the grip of a severe drought. It has been amazing to see how South Africans have joined hands in the spirit of Ubuntu through various initiatives to assist fellow citizens in need. SBS ® Water Systems (Pty) Ltd is proud to have aided in this national disaster alongside NGO Gift of the Givers. We are also extremely fortunate that the nature of our product allows us to rapidly respond to areas in need.”
