Support Operation Hydrate: simply sms“WATER” to 42530!


The current drought in South Africa has severely affected several communities in the North West, Free State and Limpopo provinces, which are dependent on deliveries of donated water as a result.  Old Mutual has partnered with Operation Hydrate, a volunteer organisation founded in answer to the dire need for water in these regions, and TruckSA, to assist in collecting and distributing water donations.


Public response to date has been overwhelming, with over 12 million litres of water having been collected and distributed. The drought continues, however, and every donation is needed and deeply appreciated.
