Knysna Fire Disaster

20170615
George Rotary Club’s contribution to the relief efforts for the Knysna fire victims was quick and focussed. The Club purchased two bakkie loads of warm second hand clothes from the George SPCA shop. This made our cash work twice as hard. Not only were we able to provide a couple of hundred items of warm clothing for Knysna fire victims, but we were also able to financially contribute to the SPCA who used the money from this sale to finance animal rescue operations for animals caught up in this disaster.

The Club Teamed up with and the Mayor of George and Marius van der Colff from George Super Kitchens to provide hot cooked meals for both fireman and victims. Marius and his Team cooked the food , Rotary helped finance the food and the Mayor arranged transport from George to the areas where the food was most needed. We estimate that some 10,000 hot meals were provided during the week after the disaster. Funds have poured into Rotary from generous donors and our Club has put this to good use. We are currently investigating setting up a “Food Bank” of three to four thousand frozen meals that would be available within hours of any similar disaster.

A BIG Rotary Thank You to all our donors and especially to Marius and the Municipality for joining us in this worthwhile project.
