The calls have been coming in not from those requesting assistance but amazingly from corporates wanting to support stricken communities. With all our troubles, frictions and challenges this is indeed an incredible country where the spirit of Ubuntu always takes center stage and reigns supreme.
ASHISHA ONLINE would like to assist by raising funds and donating to GIFT OF THE GIVERS to assist with on site assessments identifying areas of severe damaged and providing informal settlements, houses in low lying locations and the non-insured that are dependent on a compassionate nation to assist them in their days of distress. They don't have food or shelter.
The need is huge with massive damages to roads, highways turned into rivers, shipping containers floating on the N2, retaining walls collapsed with people trapped underneath, cars have been washed away, debris and trees blocking roads, people can't get to work, health facilities had to reduce services, religious institutions as well as many homes have been damaged, electrical infrastructure is non-functional aggravating load shedding, streams have become raging rivers, people have lost their lives. Those making it to work have to carry extra shoes and socks as they walk through streams to get to transport that in turn has to negotiate high levels of water on roads.
In Tongaat a lady and three children were washed away tragically. Three bodies have been found, one child is still missing. This is just one of thousands of stories that really have hit home for us. There is substantial destruction all over.
Hot meals, blankets, bottled water, warm clothes, sanitary pads and diapers are the initial requirements for those in low lying areas who have lost their material possessions. Food parcels, school uniforms and stationery will be provided where the need arises, building material will be considered as well as repairs to damaged school infrastructure. All of these items require funding and we would like to help get your assistance.
Every week we will be sending ALL funds to GIFT OF THE GIVERS. Your help in this will be greatly appreciated. No matter how big or small.
All names of those that have contributed will go in a draw at the end of May and we will be giving away 3 BLACK SB PALM HOOKAH'S. The more you donate the better the chances are of winning.
Each Ticket will be R100. Simply purchase here.
At the end of the day, its not about us. Its about those families that have nothing at all!
