Johannesburg - The pleas for relief efforts and help continue in Johannesburg's Alexandra township after a fire destroyed 500 shacks, leaving hundreds of people without shelter, food and clothes.
Aid group Gift of the Givers said its teams were on site in the area.
"Our teams are registering the rest of the victims and transporting them to a nearby hall where we are providing food, bottled water, blankets and mattresses. During the course of today further appropriate interventions will be affected," said the group.
If you would like to help the victims of the devastating fire, donations should be dropped at the City of Johannesburg Emergency Management Services offices in Sandton. Donations can also be made at the Alexandra Fire Stations.
"This is to ensure proper coordination, as there have been opportunists from elsewhere attempting to benefit at the expense of victims," said the City of Johannesburg Department of Public Safety.
