Premiership league donates to xenophobia victims

JOHANNESBURG---(CAJ News), THE South African Premier Soccer League has donated an assortment of clothing items to victims of the recent xenophobic attacks, as the chilly weather bites in the country.

The goods were handed over by the league’s president Leepile Taunyane at Lyndhurst Refugee Camp in Alexandra outside Johannesburg, last weekend.”We were warmly received by the immigrants, and they expressed their gratitude for the donation,” Taunyane said.

The refugees were displaced from Johannesburg townships after being attacked by a section of South African nationals, during the disturbances with claimed over 60 lives and displaced tens of thousands.Those who could not return to their countries of origin are now sheltered at temporary refugee camps, where conditions in some of them have been described as unsuitable for human habitation.

At this time of the year the victims also have to contend with the cold weather, and therefore the donation from the South African Premier League could not have come at a better time.— CAJ News.
