Help please

I know that there are probably a lot of requests for help going around, but I received a message from IkamvaYouth based in Khayelitsha that , as a result of the xenophobic violence, they have between 400 and 900 people in their hall and they don’t have enough food to feed them. Says Susan Godlonton, ‘There are 20 infants, 3 pregnant women (one in severe pain), and people are beginning to get sick. They are all sleeping on the concrete floor, and we are struggling to ensure that everyone gets fed. Although TAC and other organisations are doing an INCREDIBLE job at coordinating civil society’s response to the crisis, and ensuring that donations reach those in need across the country, more help is needed.’

You can email me if you’d like to help or ‘To find out what’s most needed at the time of your donation, please contact Bongani on 0726483278, or IkamvaYouth on 021-3626799. Their bank details are:
