Khayelistha Shack Fire Victims Recover

Personal message

Khayelitsha is an informal township in Cape Town, which is home to 391749 people and is one of South Africa's largest townships. On top of being victims of South Africa's rampant economic inequality they've recently suffered a shack fire which left more than 200 shacks destroyed, one person killed and 4000 displaced.

We have started this campaign in order to help the people of Khayelitsha recover from this loss.  We have collected R9000 so far and need more in order to afford to buy food parcels we estimate one parcel to cost a minimum of R120 if we could at least provide those to the 1300 people who are now homeless this could slightly, improve their situation. This story has moved us as concerned citizens of this country to take action.

We all have a #countryduty to make sure that our compatriots live with dignity.

Country Duty is a registered NPO who will be responsible for the distribution and purchasing of parcels.
