17 Families left homeless in Mossel Bay


MOSSEL BAY NEWS - Seventeen families from KwaNonqaba were left homeless after nine shacks burnt down on Saturday, 26 November.

According to police there was a quarrel between residents after which a shack was set alight. It is alleged that a woman set fire to a shack following an argument with her partner. It caused a fire that destroyed eight other shacks. Several families were left homeless and hungry. The police are investigating.

A local company, Leading Valve Supplier in Africa (LVSA), a contracted supplier to PetroSA, joined local stakeholders to offer
support to the families who were left destitute.

LVSA handed out food parcels consisting of tea, oil, tinned food, soya, beans, porridge, cooldrink, sugar, salt and maize meal.
Karin Theron from LVSA says with the help of the LVSA Helping Hand Foundation they are proud to contribute to communities where help is needed most.
