On average there have been ten shack fires per day in the last five years in South Africa. Once a fire starts it takes less than two minutes for an entire shack to burn down and with it all of the owner´s personal belongings. Shack fires often cause loss of life which is devastating.
With our new Fire prevention program we want to help the victims of shack fires but more importantly we want to prevent them from happening in the first place. Since fires are often caused by something as simple as as a burning candle falling down or cooking too close to a curtain, we want to educate adults as well as children on safety tips to prevent shack fires and what to do when a fire arises.
With your support we will teach adults as well as children how to be fire safe and how to extinguish fires by giving lessons and handing out information flyers. We want to plan a big event to educate the people of Walmer Township on fire prevention. Since Izizwe is a non-profit organization, your donation will be used for:
- printing out the flyers
- fire blankets
- first aid boxes
- fire intervention event
This is a new program at Izizwe Projects and we need your support. Let us try to make Walmer Township fire safe together!
