Shoprite donates 7000 litres of bottled water to various Early Childhood Development education centres in the Verulam area.

On World Water Day (22 March), Shoprite distributed more than 7 000 litres of bottled water to various Early Childhood Development (ECD) education centres in the Verulam area, KZN.

The donation, in partnership with Rise against Hunger and Aquellé, will ensure the ECD’s have sufficient clean water for drinking and cooking.

“We will continue to support the communities in which we trade, especially during times of disaster. Areas like Verulam are among those hardest hit by the ongoing water crisis in KwaZulu-Natal,” says Sanjeev Raghubir, Head of Sustainability and CSI at the Shoprite Group.
