Donation benefits most vulnerable

Victims of a fire that ravaged an informal settlement in Strand will be among the recipients of a bed donation from CPUT.

The beds are part of a renovation of one of CPUT’s largest residence, Freedom Square, and in total 1254 beds and mattresses will be donated by December.

The recipients include places of safety for children and women fleeing domestic violence and Ward 85 residents who are rebuilding their homes after the devastating fires earlier this year.

The exchange is being managed by CPUT’s Residence Business Unit in conjunction with the Community Engagement Unit. The recipients were identified by student outreach organisation, The Hope Foundation.

The City of Cape Town’s Tsoarelo Kopolo, who collected the beds from the Bellville campus on Friday, on behalf of the recipients, says the Strand residents were left with absolutely nothing after the fire.

“It will mean a lot to those families because when you have nothing and something big like this comes your way then it’s a big thing. We are very thankful to CPUT.”

CPUT’s Phillip Chibvuri says the value of the current bed donation is in excess of R100 000 with the total of the 2019 bed donation across the institution expected to total roughly R250 000 to charitable organisations.
