Mumtaz Moosa Saley is challenging South Africans to offer some cooling relief to people braving the outdoors during this heatwave.


Johannesburg, South Africa (20 October 2020) –  Spring was supposed to be the season of coolness and beautiful scenery; however, these last few days parts of South Africa have been hit by a heatwave.

This time of the year, I challenge my friends, family and communities to take empty bottles that you would usually recycle, wash them out fill them up and freeze them for people around you.

This idea came to me one year as I was running on a hot summer’s day, Murphy’s Law I ran out of water to drink during a heatwave. A gardener had seen me and asked me if I would like to fill my empty bottle. With this, the idea came that each one of us has the ability to ease someone else burdens without breaking the bank.

My challenge to you, simply take one bottle a day and hand the iced water to a car guard, beggars, or even for commuters who are on their way to or from work, leave the bottle of water outside your front gate and trust me someone somewhere who is in need will be helped without much effort.

I am encouraging you to be the change, challenge your family members to gift one iced bottle of water a day for 30 days.

Together we may save a life. Together we can be the change we want to see in the world.

Will you be joining this challenge? Let us know in the comment section.
