Twenty people volunteered immediately to assist. This was done by 20 people who volunteered immediately. The City of Joburg as well as the Ward Councillors of Wards 95 and the 113th Ward.
“The Ward Councilors and committee members were extremely helpful and responsive. It was wonderful to see how everyone came together to help,” says Markus Neuweiler who is a Scientology volunteer minister from Castle Kyalami.
In the following days, more and more volunteer volunteers showed up help and help rebuild the community. As the families that lost their homes were escorted to an adjacent shelter, everyone willingly helped take care of the cleanup. The group even chose to clean up the river’s bank which was covered in garbage and debris arising from the flood. the river was cleaned. This encouraged others who joined the team to assist too.
A counselor for the ward was amazed by the way the community came together to create a positive impact within the area.

They are helping to bring the people in our community to work together to clean up our environment. I’ve never heard of this before. Thank you.”
