In the heart of the numerous fires that Cape Town has had to endure, another blaze broke out, but this time, it was Cissie Gool House in Woodstock that suffered the effects.
The City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service was called to the scene on Thursday evening while many residents had to evacuate the building. No fatalities were reported.
“It’s self governing structures, community of care and resilient activism alongside other occupations is a key beacon to working class struggles in South Africa,” they add.
Many of the residents will now need support after this raging blaze, and communities are urged to assist where they can by means of donations. There is a great need for mattresses, bedding, food and water.
Donations can be delivered directly to Cissie Gool House (77 Mountain Road, Woodstock), or contact Fagmeedah on 083 749 1070 or Buhle 073 435 7580 directly.
