Humanitarian help needed for Hatcliffe

I SPENT the afternoon of last Friday trying to get some humanitarian assistance for the Hatcliffe Extension residents who are now without shelter and will soon be without food, when they move away from their small kitchen gardens, chicken

s etc.


I am shocked to report that so far, I have not been able to identify a single NGO or other organisation prepared to help, apart from one church. Thank you God for your churches!


International Red Cross reports they only deal with war situations while Zimrights says this is a nation-wide problem, too big for them… and so on.


Please, friends — we need help for about 500 families. We need plastics for shelter and some emergency food packs, delivered either directly to residents at Hatcliffe Extension new stands (opposite SIRDC) or to Northside Community Church — attention Destitute Care — or to my home at 4 Ashbrittle Crescent, Emerald Hill.


We doubtless also need blankets and jerseys, since it is much colder if you do not have proper shelter.


Thank you for any help you can give.
