Knysna Fire; how can you help?
Find out the latest updates about the devastations and where you can donate
Last Update 9 June 2017
Not only has the #Capestorm wreaked havoc in the Mother City but now the Knysna fires have torn through the Western Cape affecting over 77 000 people. Due to the fires, families in the areas have had to evacuate with no indication of the raging fires calming down. Mother nature has released it’s wrath on the Plettenberg Bay and Knysna areas.
There are ways to help even if you are many kilometres away! As with the Hout Bay fires in the beginning of 2017, there are places you can take items to donate as well as relief funds you can donate to. Every bit will aid the thousands that are displaced by the fires. Let us stand together like we did for the 2017 Hout Bay Fire.
One of the easiest ways to donate is to visit the Salvation Army Southern Africa site. There are active donation links where you can help victims of the Knysna fires and #capestorm - helping you to do your bit to help!
