Donations Needed – Khayelitsha Fires

WE NEED YOUR HELP
The last week has seen 3 fires destroying approximately 450 homes and affecting just under 2000 people in communities across Cape Town. Town 2 in Khayelitsha was the biggest fire along with Kosovo in Philippi and Hangberg in Hout Bay.
The RESPOND Coalition is working with local church communities to support the intervention by the City and other NGOs and representatives have been on site establishing what will be helpful in responding to the fires.

Financial contributions will go towards specifically identified needs within each site to purchase and support physical relief and rehabilitation efforts. The Warehouse will manage these through a designated account.
