Woodlane Village lost 89 shacks in a fire on 18 July and 534 people were affected. Three people died.

We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know.

We all belong to this family, this human family, God's family.
