4000 people homeless after devastating fire.
there is a way we can help!
As we celebrated the culmination of our beautiful festival of miracles and light on Thursday 17th of December 2020, a devastating wind fueled fire blazed through 1000+ of homes in Masiphumelele leaving 4000 people homeless.
We are partnering with Mensch to raise funds to help the victims of the fire rebuild their homes. Mensch has partnered with Ikhayalami, a specialist in informal housing construction and planning who have designed and built thousands of upgraded homes in informal settlements across the Western Cape. Ikhayalami’s structures are fire retardant, flood and break-in resistant; they are made from high quality materials, designed to last.
a new home costs r18,000. let’s work together as a community that cares and see how many families we can help!
know someone else who needs an upgraded home?
Project Bayit connects those in need of a home, with those that can help them, to build a home they can be proud of. If you have someone in mind specifically that you’d like to help, please go to: www.mensch.org.za/projectbayit for more information.
