Imizamo Yethu Charles MercerAbby Anderton, a Grade 11 member of the service pillar is co-ordinating Wynberg’s response to the trauma suffered by residents of Imizamo Yethu on Saturday,

A devastating fire took place in Imizamo Yethu over the weekend and thousands of families have been displaced and left destitute. We would like to appeal to the Wynberg network to support those families in need. You can drop these items off at school or alternatively at the distribution points in Hout Bay. Throughout the week, two members of the service team will deliver the items at the set distribution points in Hout Bay and to the organisation Thula Thula Hout Bay. Please call on all of your friends and family to collect items that can help these families. (Photograph courtesy of Charles Mercer)
