CapeNature staff open hearts in support of fire-stricken Wuppertal residents
On 30 December 2018, a devastating fire swept through the small town of Wuppertal in the Cederberg. Many residents lost their homes and everything they owned in the ensuing chaos.
Subsequently a call went out throughout CapeNature regions for donations of clothes, bedding and non-perishable items to those affected.
Many Hands Make Light Work
CapeNature staff opened their hearts and soon sleeping bags, crockery, cutlery, and all manner of household items were flooding into the CapeNature Head Office from all reserves and regions of the Western Cape. On January 27, a CapeNature delegation arrived in Clanwilliam to hand over the collected donations to the Cederberg municipality.
Donations unloaded at the drop-off point
Donations and supplies have been streaming into the Cederberg area from all provinces as South Africans open their hearts in the wake of the devastating fires.
A Willing Spirit
Much more needs to be done and there is a lot of hard work ahead but the Wuppertal community is rebuilding with the knowledge that the prayers and best wishes of South Africans everywhere are with them. CapeNature is privileged at being able to contribute in a small way to the ongoing relief effort.
