1200 houses burn in South Africa

Just heard a spokesman for the Nial Mellon Township Challenge speak on the radio. Some 1200 of the buildins in a township burnt down at the weekend, 5000 people are now homeless.Some of these buildings were constructed by Irish builders who volunteered their efforts last December for free! It’s a shame to see this happen but hopefully they can get this up and running again.
