Fire on Stappelford Farm

Gift of the Givers provides disaster relief to 60 families who's homes at Stappelford farm burned down. There were 2 fatalities, an expecting mother and her child. The homes were made mainly of thatch and were tightly nested next to each other making it almost impossible to salvage anything as the fire moved very fast from one home to the next.

The Chief assisted with the distribution of aid as Gift of the Givers stocked the make shift kitchen with emergency food supplies

The families were most grateful for the assistance from GOTG.
