On 30 May 2018, three children between the ages of 2 and 11 perished in a shack fire in Bekkersdal, Westonaria.

The mother is in the hospital recovering from severe burn wounds. The father, Mr Makwakwa, was only able to save the baby and could only watch helplessly as the fire consumed his other children.

"This happens during Child Protection Week. We need to understand that child protection is not just about violence and abuse, but it is also about shelter and protection from harm" said Save the Children CEO Gugu Ndebele.

We are requesting that you open your hearts and wallets so that we as Save the Children can support this family and others that are affected by this devastating incidence.

We can never bring back these precious little ones or even numb the pain the family is feeling, but we can help restore their dignity.
