RESPOND Incident – Imizamo Yethu Fires – September 2020

The RESPOND Cape Town region has been activated following a fire in Imizamo Yethu informal settlement during the night of 5 September 2020. Clayten Gouws, from Antioch Church, will be filling the role of incident coordinator and the Bergvliet Methodist Church, with Rev Steven Lottering, will play the role of Lead Church and Liaison Coordinator respectively.

As we wait for further information to emerge regarding which stakeholders will respond to which needs, please feel free to deposit money into the Warehouse account to cover bulk purchases. Please reference your donation with your email address and “RESPOND – IY”.

We will make more information available as decisions are made. If you would like to know more about the RESPOND Coalition and how you or your church can get involved, please visit the RESPOND Coalition page.
