Khayelitsha Fires Oct 2018

Updated: Mar 23, 2020

During October 2018, Lerato's Hope and PBC assisted RESPOND Network in relief efforts for a fire that damaged the homes of Khayelitsha residents. PBC was a drop-off point for donations.

From RESPOND Network:

"Thanks to your active participation, the RESPOND coalition was able to effectively support the Relief efforts in Town 2, Khayalitsha (342 dwellings) AND the Overcome Community, Muizenburg (309 dwellings)

Between these two sites, the following Aid was distributed:

  • More than 500 Food Packs 

  • 60 Infant Packs 

  • 656 x 5Litre Bottled Water

  • More than 300 Individually packed, clean and sorted per size Clothing Packs

  • Clean Duvet Inners and Pillow Inners"

Fires are common in the summer due to the crowded construction of the township areas. We expect more fires to occur as the summer heat progresses and hope that our communities can remain generous and active in becoming more and more proximate and emphatic to the daily experience of township residents.
