Random Acts of Kindness with Dis-Chem

Random Act of Kindness goes to Akunamlilo Fire Fighters

The Dis-Chem Foundation in partnership with 702 donates R120 000 to Akunamlilo Fire Fighters, an organisation that helps prevent the spread of shack fires that occur in Johannesburg.

Akunamlilo, which translates to 'there's no fire', helps ensure the safety of people living in shacks and surroundings, by giving people specialised fire extinguishers, and trains them in how to respond to fires.

They also teach fire awareness, which trains people in fire prevention, and how to fight accidental fires.

On the Afternoon Drive show with Xolani Gwala, Lynette Saltzman, Dis-chem Foundation founder, announced the R120 000 donation to Akunamlilo Fire Fighters CEO, Milton Mzobe.

Thank you, you guys have helped us. With this money we will be now be supplying 342 houses with fire extinguishers and fire education. We appreciate you coming through for us.

Milton Mzobe, Akunamlilo Fire Fighters CEO
