• Without water there is no life.Clean Water Now!
    Water is a fundamental human right; affected Eastern Cape residents want their water restored permanently without paying for water from water tankers, walking long distances, or boiling dirty water for drinking and cooking, which imposes health hazards. Having their water supply repaired will give the community members, residents, businesses, schools, universities and their students the dignity to complete their day to day tasks. Public bathrooms could be re-opened and give them the pride of being able to wash hands, bathe and keep their town clean. According to the United Nations, the people of Butterworth and surrounding areas have been fighting for years to access safe drinking water, a human right. (https://www.un.org/en/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=A/RES/64/292). For five years, their calls have gone unanswered, and it's now up to us - a global community who will not stand for injustice - to speak up. Sign this petition and add your voice to those of the vulnerable waterless communities of the Eastern Cape. Access to clean water is a constitutional right. Please sign this petition to protect your fundamental global human right.
