The Dis-Chem Foundation through their #CauseWeCare water campaign will be donating over 100 000 litres of clean bottled water to a number of its beneficiary organisations in Cape Town.
Group marketing director at Dischem, Melanie van Rooy says from Friday, Dischem customers can donate 5-litre bottles of water by adding them to their bill at checkout. The money is then used to purchase water for Cape Town.
