Family Heinen lost home in fire



As many of our friends and family know, the beautiful town of Knysna in South Africa, has been struck by a DEVASTATING FIRE.  Fed by winds  up to 100km/hour this  fire ripped through the community destroying everything in its path. Whole suburbs were distroyed and families were left with nothing. 

Our beloved family of German citizenship: Joachim, Katrin with their 4 young children Marta, Emma, Ida und Josef lost everything in the flames.  Their home was not only a home but a beautiful guest house which secured their living. With this gone they don't only have no more place to live, but no income to start a new life. 

I am also a German citizen who lives in Knysna with my family. My children and the Heinen's children are going to the same school and we developed a close friendship. 

The whole family together with their 2 dogs are currently finding refuge in a small cottage in the neighbouring town of Sedgefield. 

We do need your help for family Heinen  to start a new life! They are the most loving and beautiful people and while they normally are the ones to help  others - they need our help now!  
I will make guarantee that 100% of the money that gets raised through this campaign will we transferred to the Heinen's bank account in South Africa . 

Please donate to their cause & share this link as widely as you can!!

Thank you so much,

Christine Collins
