RESIDENTS of the Mkholombe informal settlement whose shacks were burnt down recently received blankets, food hampers and hygiene packs from the Gift of the Givers, Dumakude and MA Afrika Build on Mandela Day.

The three organisations met with the Mkholombe community at the Mkholombe crèche and the gifts were distributed and welcomed by community members. “We attended to a plea from the community requesting urgent assistance after their shacks had burnt to the ground. Many families were left homeless as more than 30 shacks were left destroyed,” said Imraan Mahomed from Gift of the Givers and Dumakude. - Supplied.
