“Another massive fire in Masi over the weekend. From D section through to the E Section and into reed beds. Devastating. Not much salvaged. About *800 shacks. Will do proper count with housing department soon.
The City of Cape Town will provide a starter kit probably tomorrow. Need to get site cleared first. Hall open for those that need accommodation and will be fed for at least 3 days. Donations of building material, clothes, household goods required. Please drop off at Living Hope. Also children’s and babies goods.” Regards Felicity
* Update 1000 shacks.
Recommendation: If you know someone who was personally affected by the fire rather give directly to them as it takes a while to sort and distribute donated items. Alternatively Living Hope is the drop off zone.
