Donations are still flooding in for the aid efforts geared towards shack fire victims of SST informal settlement in Town Two, just in time for the Christmas rush.

CCFM Community Radio Station- which is a Christian radion station servicing believers around Cape Town- also threw in their lot in the basket last Saturday, donating clothing, food parcels and nappies to the victims.

The event took place at a tent opposite the Town Two informal braai area. In October, around 342 shacks were ravaged by fire in the area, leaving more than a thousand people homeless. Fortunately, there was only one loss of life in the aftermath.

Nombulelo Nyabeni, one of the beneficiaries, expressed her gratitude to the station for their generosity.

“The fire occurred two months ago but still there are people coming to donate to us ... I thought people were tired to come here. I thank them for the nappies as I had no money ... They are too expensive,” said Nyabeni.

Annie Siddall, CCFM programme manager, said the initiative was made successful, thanks to their loyal listeners, who donated all the stuff.

“We asked our listeners to donate anything useful, that the fire victims can utilise, they responded well to the call. As a station, we are happy to make it a special Christmas for them,” said Siddall.

She said it was the first for the station doing so much for Khayelitsha.
