The Overberg has experienced 25 major fires since the start of December. Fire-fighting teams battled many of these fires for more than a week.
The goFPA is so grateful to everyone who helped to bring these fires under control – from the landowners and farmworkers supporting fire-fighting teams on the ground, to those living in or visiting the Overberg who provided provisions and donations to support the work.
