Gift of the Givers Prepares R2 million Aid Package for Khayelitsha Fire
Gift of the Givers teams were on site arranging meals for the victims of the devastating shack fire, fanned by the strong Cape winds, that destroyed 500 homes and displaced 4000 people. People were in a state of shock, hungry (not having eaten since 3am when the fire occurred), traumatised and deeply upset. Whilst some families tried to salvage what they could other's escaped with only the clothes on their back.
