A fire has destroyed a hostel at the De la Bat School for the deaf in Worcester.
17 boys lost all of their belongings in the blaze on Monday afternoon.
Coporates and members of the public are being asked to assist where possible.
The priority is to provide the boys with essentials like hearing aids and clothes.
The most important thing is their hearing aid, so any financial contribution will go towards that, as well as clothes.— Bronagh Casey, Director of Communications, Western Cape Education Dept
