When the re­quest to do­nate wa­ter was sent out to em­ploy­ees they im­me­di­ately took up the chal­lenge to as­sist.

A to­tal of 1 511 litres of wa­ter were col­lected, in from one- to five- litre bot­tles. The wa­ter was dis­patched to the Barkley East and Rhodes in the East­ern Cape.

Ac­cord­ing to Gishma John­son, GMSA cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager, ac­tions like th­ese are of­ten ini­ti­ated by em­ploy­ees. In this case, em­ployee at the Struan­dale plant, Rene Mostert, re­sponded to the Op­er­a­tion Hy­drate cam­paign and ar­ranged for trans­port to de­liver the wa­ter to the rel­e­vant ar­eas. “Our em­ploy­ees sub­scribe to the com­pany’s “We give back” ethos and are al­ways en­thu­si­as­tic to re­act to the call for as­sis­tance.”
