The foundation's director, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman says other good samaritans are also helping to make the lives of affected students a little easier.

Sooliman said, "the students say they're very grateful. Some have no toiletries, they've asked for simple stuff like toothpaste and toothbrushes..."

"We'll be providing them with three meals a day. Vodacom has given students free airtime and data so that they can contact their families."
