STATE OF EMERGENCY: Pink Loerie Knysna Relief Drive

Huge sections of Knysna have burned to the ground. Entire homes, guest houses, schools and municipal buildings, many people (including children and the elderly) have been evacuated, but not everyone has been accounted for yet. Hundreds are misplaced and many have lost all their belongings in the fire. Knysna continues to burn at the time of this press release!


You can donate any amount to the Pink Loerie Knysna Relief Fund Account (details below) to assist with disaster relief efforts in this fire stricken coastal town loved by so many.

As the home of the Pink Loerie, the LGBTQ+ community is heartbroken about what is happening in our favorite town. We want to show that Knysna means more to us than just a place to have fun and parade every year. We have had so many good times there and now need to lend a hand during these hard times. The people of Knysna need assistance with food, water, shelter, electricity, generators, blankets, clothes etc. Anything you can spare. Some have lost EVERYTHING they own. Knysna has been there for us over the past 17 years, it’s time for us to return the favor.

All food and clothes etc. donations can be dropped off at:


1. The Knysna Fire Department, Waterfront Drive, Knysna
2. Metelerkamps, 3 Union Street, Waterfront Drive, Knysna (opposite Knysna Fire Department)
3. Knysna and Partners, Main Road, Knysna (opposite Knysna Mall)



1. Visit Sedgefield, 30 Main street, Sedgefield / 044 343 2007 or 074 4562253

We will update the drop off points as needed.
