- #HELP DOUSE THE FLAMES
My name is Hamdaan Ahmed.
I reside in Lenasia(South Africa) an area with close to 100 000 residents.
On 25th November 2019 a tragedy unfolded in front of my eyes ending in a family losing their loved one , a little 5 year old girl lost her life to smoke inhalation, when the house they live in caught fire.
I was part of a team of residents who selflessly risked their lives to try and save the little girl and her cousin.
I was shattered when this little angel was removed from the blazing building with no signs of life as she had succumbed to the smoke.
Sadly the fire department which is not located near Lenasia, arrived long after the girls had been removed from the building.
Our aim is to raise sufficient funds so that we, the residents of Lenasia can purchase a few water trailer tankers and other fire safety necessities. We are also focusing on training volunteers to use the relevant equipment.
These water tankers will be situated at different points in and around Lenasia in order to be accessible not only to Lenasia but the surrounding rural settlements as well.
We appeal to your generosity in order for us to achieve this goal, and hopefully save lives with the help of Almighty God.
