Cape Town - The water crisis and its associated impacts are causing critical problems for most of South Africa. 

According to a report by Africa Check, South Africa has less water per person than our neighbours Botswana and Namibia, and although 88% of SA households have access to water, only 50% of homes have piped water. We are also the 39th 'driest' country in the world.

Besides Cape Town, some of the country's other cities are also dealing with severe drought as dams have hit an all-time low.
