After one of the driest rainfall seasons on record, South Africa is in the grip of a severe
drought. This has placed a strain on water supplies across the country, affecting 2.7
million households. The hardest hit are those living in rural areas, where residents have
to collect water in buckets once a day. With the drought persisting, South Africa has now
declared five of its nine provinces a drought disaster for agriculture. Thus, it has become
neccessary to conserve our limited water resources. Read about some of the easy ways
we can conserve water on a daily basis.
