I have been well looked after since the fire. I have clothes, food and shelter. My father and sister have been generous.
Thank you very much to the people who gave me their garage for a week. I felt secure there. But now i’m even luckier… Except for a few days in Oyster, i’ve been given a self-catering flat to stay in for one month. That will provide me some stability, enabling me to better help Knysna.
I believe in pay-it-forward so i got one homeless, fire victim a meal last night and two nights in a backpackers.
Some of us are lucky. Some of us aren’t. As people begin to forget what happened, as some reduce it to entertainment, it’s becomes more important that we help where we can.
