R10.00 – R500.00
The fund has been established in response to the identified need to be able to react quickly to support communities in times of major disasters, such as bushfires, floods, storms or other crises. The devastating bushfires in October 2020 affected many communities within the Boshoff area in the Free State. As always, Blieve communities and our Community Support Agencies were swift to respond, and Wii Ride (Pty) Ltd quickly launched a special appeal to raise money to provide services in these areas. Where support services are available through Uniting, or indeed any other existing services, these agencies will continue to provide that support. However, what we heard from several communities was that there were still a number of gaps in what support was available.
