On Wednesday 2 June 20121 the Gift of the Givers Organization visited the community of Qolweni to give mattresses, toiletries, blankets, and groceries to those families from this community that were affected by last week’s fires.
Councilor from Ward 3, Cllr. Xola Matyila, was overjoyed by the intervention from this organization. He thanked them for the massive contribution that they have made to the lives of those families that lost everything because of the fires.
He encouraged the community to remain united and that they should always express humanity towards each other like they have done since these fires broke out. Cllr. Matyila pleaded with the community to exercise extreme caution because these fires do not only destroy properties and changes people’s living conditions but it kills. He expressed his sincere condolences to the families that lost their loved ones.
The Bitou Municipality also thank the Gift of the Givers Organization for the role they played. A special appreciation to Mario Ferreira, Kwanele Dsmane and Edwill Jantjies who represented the organization.
We also use the opportunity to pass a word of appreciation to all other organizations, institutions, and individuals that went out of their way to support the residents of the Qolweni Community throughout this ideal. Plettenberg Bay is a town where its people care for one another.
