Alexandra Eviction 05 June 2014

Taking residence in empty buildings that have otherwise become abandoned is a solution to homelessness for many impoverished South Africans who await land set aside for low cost housing.

On 04 June 2014, families squatting in factories in Alexandra were evicted and moved to a temporary shelter in Marlboro Hall. Gift of the Givers was contacted by Disaster Management to provide aid to the 90 families to help ease the winter chill with blankets and food. The GOTG team provided the following aid:

  • 500 Blankets
  • 5000 Bread Rolls
  • 50kg Rice
  • Box of Cooking Oil
  • Bulk Vegetables
  • 20 x 10kg Mealie Meal
  • 2 x 50 kg Samp
  • 2 Boxes of Soup
  • Bale of Salt
  • 6 Boxes of Biscuits
  • Bale of Sweets

Total Project Value: R50 410.00
