Blake Dyason and Jacques Weber are two of the volunteers helping out the citizens affected by the Hout Bay Fire. Here is more about what they are doing.
Meet Blake Dyason and Jacques Weber, two volunteers working to help the people affected by the devastating Hout Bay Fire.
Blake Dyason was at the forefront in helping collect donations for the people affected by the fire. Many lost their homes and all their worldly possessions.
“Cape Town Cycle Tour cancelled. And thousands left homeless and some lives lost in the Hout Bay fires, I’ll use this time to sort my house out to donate clothes and bedding”
“Wow, such a humbling, yet overwhelming Day. Helping collect clothes, bedding and food for those affected by the devastating fires. Witnessing hundreds of people, corporates and charities stream in. Thinking of all those left homeless. So happy I could help.”
Jacques Weber was also a force behind donations. He reached out to Pick n Pay who helped feed over 50 fire fighters.
“Over 50 fire fighters have been fed a hot meal, dessert, drinks & snacks this evening.
Thanks to the incredible support of the community and most importantly Pick n Pay for stepping up to my appeal for firefighters within minutes of it being posted.
To the incredible and amazing team who have fought endless fires today – I salute you.”
Jacques is now calling for help with donations for the school children that have lost everything.
“As many of your kids are off to school this morning, please spare a thought to the many kids of the Imizamo Yethu Community who have been left with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.
These families need all of our support to help them get back on their feet. We are looking for monetary donations to buy new school uniforms.
We will also be collecting all stationery supplies (pens, pencils, erasers, writing books, rulers etc.)”
