For now it is all quiet on our side of the mountain. We hope and pray that it stays that way so that our firefighters and rescue teams can recuperate and regain some energy.
The main message behind all these events should be that we should not give up. We keep going and we do not lose hope. Please report any flare up as quick as you can. We want to prevent anything like this from happening again.
We thank all of you have been so generous in all different ways. Your donations go to great use and your support and kind words are extremely motivating.
We as the community of Paarl must stand together. Old or young, big or small, english or afrikaans. Lets not give up or give in and rather fight these fires together physically, mentally and emotionally.
We send our best wishes to other towns and communities being hit by the devastating fires.
