The elderly and the water crisis in Cape Town
– further update from the City of Cape Town
– 2nd February 2018
Following its’ query to the City, You’ve Earned It has just received the following from the CoCT who has sourced comment from Alderman JP Smith, Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, and Social Services.
Special provision is being made at the points of distribution for physically challenged persons. We are also engaging with National Government, Provincial Government, businesses, communities and NGOs to support us to care for our most vulnerable residents such as the elderly and those with disabilities.
Calls for support are also being made for vulnerable groups such as persons in old age homes, Early Childhood Centres (ECDs), and hospices to be supplied with bottled water.
Many organisations have already come forward to assist with the delivery of water to old age homes and to vulnerable persons throughout the city who are unable to collect water for themselves.
