The Hungry Caterpillar
A lifelong dream, The Hungry Caterpillar burned down completely in the Knysna fire. Dozens of local families depended on the nursery and they are desperate for a way to rebuild. With contributions from the greater South African community, it might still be possible to reopen the daycare that influenced the lives of so many young children.
