#OperationSA and the Al-Imdaad Foundation have launched an urgent appeal for funds to assist victims of the devastating storms and fires in the Western Cape.
#CapeRelief was set up on Thursday morning in response to calls for assistance from thousands affected by the storms in and around Cape Town and by the fires in Knysna.
“Our target is to raise at least R1-million within 24 hours,” said Yusuf Abramjee from #OperationSA . “The money will go directly to the Al-Imdaad Foundation who have teams on stand-by to buy essential items such as food, blankets and clothing. We will deliver the aid without delays,” said Abramjee.
“We also have volunteers who will distribute the much needed aid,” he added.
“We appeal to South Africans to again open their hearts and dig deep into their pockets and let’s assist those affected by the storms and fires. They need our help and they need it now,”
“We have a 100% donation policy,” he added.
