A local delivery service is expanding its services to help Cape Town residents during the current water crisis.
Picup South Africa says it will deliver water to homes and businesses through an on-demand, same-day courier service.
After seeing long queues at the Newlands spring, Co-Founder and CEO Antonio Bruni and his colleagues brainstormed how the company could help during the water shortage.
