Joburg Water has embarked on a campaign, #nappies4dignity, which calls for adult nappy donations.
Elderly South Africans who cannot take care of themselves and control their body functions are among the most vulnerable people in the country.
Not only that, there are also those who cannot control body functions and are often without the necessary sanitation materials for a dignified life.
Executive Manager of Stakeholder Relations & Communications at Joburg Water, Hilgard Matthews, says the campaign started last week.
“This is a topic that is not spoken about. Where you will see adverts for nappies for babies, you will see adverts for sanitary towels for young ladies and women, but have you ever seen an advert for nappies for elderly?”
