Blown away by people’s kindness

Raatiqah Tagodien, New Horizon

New Horizon, like everywhere else in the Western Cape, was hit by a storm on Tuesday June 6.

Calls started coming in from about 5am from people who had tiles blown off their roofs.

We rallied people to the Pelican Park Owners Association (PPOA) office, including leaders in the community, to assist with repairs.

We enlisted the assistance of Power Construction and the Patriotic Alliance (PA) party who were ready to assist.

Work started in partnership with the PA and four members of the community.

In total 150 roofs were repaired and roof tiles were kindly donated by the PA and Power Construction.

The Abameli Abasha Neighbourhood Watch of New Horizons and Power Construction have been instrumental in getting the job

The community and PPOA wish to express our gratitude to these kind individuals.
