The ‘Operation H20’ initiative of Darul Ihsan Centre - in its continuing drive to provide potable water to affected communities – distributed thousands of litres of bottled water in Dundee.
On Sunday 13 November 2016 the relief team, together with volunteers, departed in the early hours of the morning with a truck load of the bottled water for the town of Dundee in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
On arrival at the Dundee Masjid the relief team were met by Maulana Younoos Kosadia and other community members.
The first point of distribution was Morningside School in the Stratford area where they were joined by the Mayor of Dundee, Cllr Richard Mbatha and Mrs Gumbi, the principal of the school.
Some 3 100 litres of bottled water was distributed to pupils and some senior members of the community.
The team proceeded to other areas of Stratford Farm, Madonsela Location, Dlamini Village, Gonawakhe and Marikana Village where a total of 12 020 litres of bottled water, 210 blankets and 250 literature packs (in Zulu) were distributed.
Mrs Gumbi, Councillor Mabatha, Maulana Kosadia and senior members of the Dundee community expressed their sincere gratitude to the ‘Operation H20’ team for providing the much needed water in the affected areas.
Alhamdulillah, the bottled water distribution in Dundee is ‘Operation H20’s 13th water relief project for the 2016 year.
