Hammond says with the help of publicity generated by media companies such as CapeTalk, generous businesses and Cape Town residents stepped up to assist.

One of the first concerns was to replace the lost backpacks and stationery for pupils and Shoprite stepped up and donated those supplies.

The community of Cape Town came out in their droves to provide stationery and food because their feeding scheme kitchen was destroyed, and other items. And we are just extremely grateful for the support we have received out there.

Bronagh Hammond, Spokesperson - WCED

The school has lost its computer room and library.

Donations of books and educational toys are still needed.
