Nedbank Business Accelerator with CapeTalk

Aqua4Life providing clean water to poorer communities

Aqua4Life provides a form of solution to water shortages in the Western Cape. They supply up to 570 litres of filtered water for drinking, cooking, plants, and pets.

Owner, Nico Germishuizen has been working on his own design of bulk purification processes.

He says his design will be helpful to people living in the rural parts of the country where water is contaminated.

What we try and do is to get the water systems to the people in those areas.
