The aQuellé KHULA team was invited to join a clean-up at a wetland in the Thembeni Area, KwaDukuza, hosted by the Department of Forestry Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE), Economic Development Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA), Umgeni Water, ILembe District and KwaDukuza Municipality.
Philisiwe Buthelezi, from the Department of DFFE, said, “We are at a beautiful wetland, but have the problem of dumping in the area. Since is it such a sensitive environmental area we are trying to raise awareness by bringing in children from a local school and the community of Ward 12 to commemorate World Wetlands Day. The day has been a big success.”
Heading up the aQuellé KHULA team was Gladson Songelwa, who said, “We are glad to be part of this wonderful initiative in caring for our environment and supporting our local communities.”
The clean-up crew was kept refreshed with aQuellé KHULA Softs Drinks, which were welcomed and well-deserved on the warm day!
