Campaign for Lesley & Eckardt

Campaign for Lesley & Eckardt

Personal message

On the night of the 7th of June, Knysna was surrounded and engulfed by fires during gale force winds.

While Eck was stranded in George, Lesley worked through the night to help vacate Knysna Hospital as thousands of residents lost their houses to the flames.

Unfortunately, their house burnt to the ground; and this campaign has been created to help them get back on their feet with their animals and baby-on-the-way as soon as possible.

Any donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your support!
