The donation event was held on Friday. It was organised by the SANParks Honorary Rangers of the Johannesburg region and Latest Sightings. King David High School made their facilities available. A number of schools participated. The Land rover club transported the items on Saturday to Phalaborwa where it was received by the Bushveld region of the SANParks Honorary Rangers for distribution in Shingwedzi.

Donated food and clothing:

Thank you for your generous donations to those affected by the floods!

We have received considerable support and now have reached a point where we have adequate resources to assist the people in need. SANParks has also made a considerable financial contribution to the effort.

We will be closing down this appeal by midnight on the 5th of February.
