Fire on York Farm

Gift of the Givers responds with various aid to the 14 families who face the miserable aftermath of a fire that destroyed their homes and belongings. Thankfully the community has not suffered fatalities and are being accommodated by sympathetic neighbours.

Their homes, designed like many farm areas, are mainly thatch and tightly nested on open bare lands where strong winds put residents at great risk of being caught in felt fires. Gift of the Givers distributes the following aid:

  • 35kg Rice
  • 28 kg Sugar
  • 8 litre Cooking Oil
  • 15kg Canned baked beans
  • 12 Litre Juice, served
