CAPE TOWN - A Masiphumelele organisation on Monday said its number one priority is to collect school uniforms and stationery for the victims of the fire that destroyed over 250 shacks.
A massive blaze swept through the community near Kommetjie on Friday, leaving 1,300 people homeless.
Some victims were being accommodated at a local community hall while others re-erected their shacks.
Masiphumelele Corporation (Masicorp)'s Jill Stirrup says they are appealing to the public for donations.
"Our main position is to help the children get back to school."
Retail giant Pick n Pay has set up donation collection points at several of its branches in the southern suburbs in aid of Masiphumelele residents.
