Fire leaves family with nothing Campaign
We are in a Family of 11 people, 7 Adults, and 4 children are ; 3 Males, 4 females, and 4 kids. Age: Males of the house: 49 and 47 years, Mother: 43years, females: 30 years, 24 years, and 23 years and a teenager of 16 years old, 2 boys of 12 years and 10 years old and lastly a baby boy of 8 months.
It was Tuesday, September 12th at 19h30 p.m when my sister and I saw the fire through the window from outside, we quickly ran inside the house to alert people so that we could successfully put out the fire but it was already too late because it reached the roof… I don’t know what started the fire, but the fire report indicated that it was a short circuit.
From that moment we wanted to save some of our belongings but we couldn’t because there was too much smoke inside the house, to the point that our father told us to get out of the house… our mom wanted to go back to get money, but instead the fire was huge and she couldn’t reach her room to get the money. That is how we ended up outside without anything. We lost everything, all the furniture inside the house, all our clothes, etc… everything has gone as I am speaking now we have no house at the moment.
We are currently at the South Africa Red Cross Society which has taken me and my family since Tuesday the day the fire took place till now. My Parents are currently down due to this tragedy, can’t believe we have lost everything. We need to start from all over from the house and so on… we are all in a big shock. We thank the Red Cross Society that provided Shelter for us for this moment 🙏
