Yesterday afternoon four of our staff were brutally attacked while trying to do good in the community 💔

We recently launched “The Fencing Project” – an initiative to build fences around community members’ yards. The aim is to create more safe homes for people who wish to adopt dogs 🏡

While building the first fence of the programme for a dog named Speedy, our staff were held up at gunpoint and mercilessly attacked. The generator, tools, wallets, cellphones and car keys were stollen 😡

Magci got beaten over the head with a gun and then a hammer and Tabo got beaten on the back with a hammer. Both were rushed to the hospital’s emergency room. The other two staff, Lynton and Mtho, were luckily unharmed but are extremely shaken

Magci has suffered a haematoma and needed stitches on his head. Tabo has multiple contusions to his back.

We are so angry but also so heartbroken. We work so hard for this community to elevate and empower people and to make the lives of animals better. It is sad how the criminal element affects the good people of Khayelitsha who want to have a normal safe environment for their families and their pets. This fencing project can change so many lives, creating homes for pets, but now we are scared to continue building them 😢

Any donations to help cover the costs of replacing the generator, tools, car keys, personal items and to pay for medical bills will be greatly appreciated 🧡
