India & South Africa cricket teams contribute to improve water supply in drought-hit Cape Town
The cricket teams of India and South Africa have donated Rs one lakh to help Cape Town. This South African town is affected by severe water shortage. The money donated will be used to buy water bottles and drill bore wells to improve the water supply.
India's cricket captain Virat Kohli and South African captain Faf du Plessis together handed over a cheque of Rs one lakh to the organization, ‘The Gift of the Givers Foundation’. This is one of Africa’s largest disaster relief organizations.
The funds will also be used to help disabled people and children in orphanages. They face greater difficulty in getting clean, drinking water as they are marginalized and their needs get neglected.
Jerseys signed by team members were sold for a huge price. This amount was used for the charity as well.
