Mustadafin foundation to assist with damage caused by #CapeStorm

The storm that lashed Cape Town and surrounding areas on Wednesday has left a trail of destruction and despair, especially for the City's most vulnerable.

The Mustadafin Foundation is one of the many organisations who will once again be providing relief to those affected.

Ghairunisa Johnstone-Cassiem, director at the Mustadafin Foundation spoke to Kieno Kammies about some of the work they are doing.

We have been activated to be in Hout Bay, Valhalla Park, Strand... so those are the areas that have been hit very badly in a sense of the informal areas.

Ghairunisa Johnstone-Cassiem, Director at the Mustadafin

We provide people with vanity packs, food, bedding, warm blankets, cooked food or food parcels but over and above that the Mustadafin yesterday distributed food parcels who are in dire need.

Johnstone-Cassiem has urged those who would like to volunteer to contact the organisation and assist with donations.

We need beanies, socks, scarves, warm jerseys and blankets. Those are the things that have been requested.
