A trip to their latest charity project in South Africa
Lemonaid & ChariTea drinks were born out of a desire to give back. It’s not about simply donating money to good causes – their mission is to empower people so that they can help themselves. They work directly with farmers to ensure they receive fair pay for raw ingredients and support local initiatives which help improve living and working conditions. Every year, they travel to the farming regions to get to know the local farmers and their working conditions.
A few weeks ago Lemonaid & ChariTea visited their rooibos tea co-operative Heidveld in South Africa just in time to witness a memorable day for the community whereby four new water tanks were installed, fully funded through the charity. The idea for this project was thought up by the farmers and community themselves – the tanks will allow greater collection and storage of rain water to support the rural villages through the dry months, benefiting over 40 households that don’t have access to tap water.
