Fire Relief Fund for Imizamo Yethu

Fire Relief Fund for Imizamo Yethu

Personal message

The tragedy that has befallen our community of Hout Bay, South Africa, more specifically the people of Imizamo Yethu (‘Mandela Park’) in the form of the raging fire that occurred in the early hours of last Saturday 11th March, is too dreadful for words.

Many people that we know and work with have been devastated by this, losing all their worldly possessions in one fell swoop. Just try and imagine the horror of this, for one second….no home, no clothing, no food… destitute in the blink of an eye. How do we even begin to try and feel their pain and suffering. We can’t. How do we help?... we do whatever we can.

Close to 2000 houses have been lost and 10000 people displaced. Relief efforts from the Hout Bay Community have been nothing short of astounding – bordering on miraculous – but a long road lies ahead. Right now, urgent funds are required across a number of fronts, most important of which is to ensure that the basic needs of this stricken community, such as food, clothing and shelter, are required right now... with basic support ongoing once they are able to move back into their homes. This campaign is a collection point for people wanting to help and reach out to this community. Let’s show our love for our fellow man… by pledging whatever funds we can afford... let’s show our community how much we care. Please find it in your hearts to do this... do it now!

A big thank you to all who have already made donations of various goods and funds, not to mention the significant investment of your own time and care.

To date, distribution of funds (or goods procured and donated) amounting to R210 000 have been made to the following organisations: Thula Thula, Gift of the Givers, Amoyo, DARG, Community Cohesion, Response IY and Kronenedal Music Academy. A significant balance remains in the fund for further deployment as needs are specifically identified during the rehabilitation process of the community. We are adopting a very stringent screening process accordingly towards ensuring that these are applied where there is greatest impact and accountability.
