A group of good Samaritans has rallied together to help those affected by the devastating Cape storm living in the Fisantekraal squatter camps.
This community was badly hit by the storm leaving more than 500 shacks severely damaged.
Youth group leader, Andie Steel-Smith, says their focus has been on mothers with young babies who have been affected by the storm.
A lot of people from neighboring suburbs came out to help the group working with Andie to fix the damaged shacks, he says.
Initially we wanted a little bit dignity and hope to be restored to every single member of the community.— Andie Steel-Smith, Youth group leader
I know that of the 500 shacks that we helped rebuild about 150 had babies less than 12 months old. We kind of focused on those as the highest priority.— Andie Steel-Smith, Youth group leader
So far the group has used about 3500 sandbags, thousands of meters of heavy black plastic, about 20kg of nails, hundreds of pieces of timber, 25 wet weather suits, 30 pairs of gloves and about 100 blankets.
All these have been funded by Andie and his wife. He says he is grateful that churches in the area have been able to help with some donations.
They also received a huge discount from a company that sells building materials - Karon Plastics.
