On Thursday, August 31st, the devastating news of the Johannesburg CBD Fire of a 5 storey building sent panic to most people, especially families and friends of now more than 74 victims. Loss of life of so many people is a real tragedy to any nation. It calls for everyone's attention!
United Way's Disaster Fund Unit made a plea for donations, in order to respond to this matter urgently. A fellow organisation, Rise Against Hunger Africa (RAHA), responded positively and promptly.
They donated and delivered these boxes of food promptly, to one of the temporary shelters for the survivors. We are trully honoured to associate with RAHA on this important initiative.
We hope this would inspire others, especially #corporates and retail, to come forward and help, since there's still a lot to be done... as most survivors are left with nothing!
