The devastating fires in and around the coastal region of Knysna have left many in need. Nothing can replace what these folks have lost - homes, pets, businesses, and even loved ones as the death toll rises. As SA rallies together to send aid, my plea is to help raise funds to rebuild a life for our friends Aldo and Cilia. Their home and pets succumbed to the flames in the initial days, but then their world was further destroyed as their workshop was razed to the grounds days later.

Currently living on the goodwill of others, their immediate basic needs are been met but in order to sustain this, Aldo needs to recover the tools of his trade to start his business again. From tools and leather to the sewing machines, he has nothing left. Many of us remember his early days with Leather Rose in Rockey Street and have watched him grow through the years, so let's put our hearts behind him and Cilia to help them build their future.

Any contribution will be appreciated, every cent counts, and this campaign is set up so that all funds go directly to them.

My thinking behind setting up a fund like this, is that Aldo and Cilia have friends all over the world and if all of us are able to contribute R20/R30, ($5 or £4) we can help them become self sufficient again in no time! It is almost impossible to understand
