Help Those In The Cold In Winter!!!
Imagine 80% rain at low degrees celsius, fighting a losing battle with buckets as you try to keep water out of your home, this is the story of every winter for many in the informal settlements. Last year’s rain affected about many people across the cape flats and informal settlements as severe weather conditions hit the city leaving homes flooded. Families in the Cape experienced flooding of their homes while informal settlements residents donned plastic sheets as they braved heavy downpours. The team of Mustadafin Foundation did not hesitate to navigate their way through water-logged streets to supply relief to victims.
in 2019 0ver 4000 people from underprivileged communities in the Western Cape benefited from the Foundation’s distribution. Every year we visit rural areas to help prepare for the approaching cold.
Currently our winter campaigns include:
A hundred Egoli informal settlement families in Schaapkraal received 100 Ikhaya (home) covers. The cover is made of PVC which is much more durable and heat resistant. This provides waterproofing for shacks against leaks from heavy rains. We do the fitting and make sure the covers, which won’t blow away or tear, are securely fitted onto the shack.
