Special Assignment featured an episode in June 2015 called ‘Afterburn’, which highlights the devastating impact of shack fires on informal settlements and disadvantaged communities in South Africa.
We were given permission to use this video in the hope that it will help to raise awareness of the impact that fires have on the lives of survivors.
The facts are overwhelming with serious burns being a leading cause of death and injury to children in Townships. Burn survivors not only endure physical agony but social isolation as well. The video tells the story of one such burn survivor and her struggle to persevere.
The Avela Foundation is committed to help raise awareness regarding the difficulties these burn survivors face as well as raising funds to help these kids recover, rehabilitate and discover their full potential.
