Hiking Table Mountain to the 5 dams is a wonderful experience. Many people who live in Cape Town don’t even know that these dams exist. These dams were built as early as 1897 to cater for the increased water demand in the region.

The Cause

With the current water crisis in drought-stricken Cape Town, Muslim Hands has embarked on local water projects, whereby well points are being built and IBC tanks installed in major community centres. We have completed 6 well points since November 2017 and intend on completing 6 more by June 2018.

Q. What time does it begin and end?

A. 7:00am – 13:00pm

Q. Is there a registration fee/ fundraising minimum amount?

A. Registration fee R100 Fundraising amount R1000.
