Strong winds devastate Khayelitsha, leaving hundreds homeless


Khayelitsha is currently facing the aftermath of severe weather that has battered the Western Cape region. Gale-force winds have ripped through six informal settlements in Ward 99, leaving widespread destruction in their wake.

With more extreme weather predicted, residents are bracing themselves for potential further damage. In response, the Gift of the Givers, a humanitarian organization, has sprung into action to provide assistance. They are encouraging residents living in informal settlements to consider evacuating if it is safe to do so.

The decision to mobilize aid comes as meteorologists forecast harsh weather conditions persisting through the weekend. Ali Sablay from the Gift of the Givers has acknowledged the strain on their resources in delivering aid promptly. He emphasizes the critical importance for residents to prioritize their safety by relocating to safer areas using any available means.

The situation underscores the vulnerability of informal settlements in the face of natural disasters and the urgent need for coordinated efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of affected communities.
