Help rebuild after fire

Personal message

Zanokhanyo Children’s Safety Home in Makhasa, Khayelitsha in Cape Town has been left destitute by a fire that destroyed the home.

In the early hours of 14 November 2018, Zanokhanyo Children’s Safety Home suffered horrific fire damage. All the children are safe, however, the home has lost almost everything and will need to start over from the ground up.

They are asking for a helping hand.

Someone was trying to break in. We had a shack that we use as a storage at the back of the house and someone jumped over the fence and caught fire while trying to steal and the place burnt down.

We know that the person is a drug addict. He was caught this morning. He said he lit a match because he couldn't see and it fell on the floor.

We lost everything; lost school books, school uniform, appliances etc. The most important thing we need is accommodation.

We also need food, clothes, bedding, clothes aged from 6-22 years.

— Yondela Nyongo, Director of Zanokhanyo Children’s Safety Home

Zanokhanyo Children’s Safety Home Logo

Zanokhanyo Children's Safety Home is located in Makhasa, Khayelitsha in Cape Town, South Africa. The home is run by the Ndithas - Nolubabalo (Nolu) and Christophe. It was founded in 2005 at another site in Khayelitsha when Nolu, an unemployed community worker, was troubled to see children living on the streets without food, after her parents had died of HIV/AIDS.
