In Soetwater near Ocean View, people are preparing for a major storm.
On Tuesday evening people were securing the tents that were heavily battered by the wind.

Faatimah Ali, a 14-year-old girl originally from Somalia, who came here for a better life, was living in the Strand area until she had to be moved to Soetwater in fear of her life.
She is in Grade 10 and desperately wants to go back to school.

“They are still fighting and we couldn’t find a place to sleep.
"Our country is still fighting. We came here for a better life,” says Ali.

She pleaded to anyone that can help to please help them. She adds that that is why they ran away from their country because they are still fighting.

“We didn’t do anything to these people, we just working to pay the rent. And that is why there is still fighting. The people are just killing our people,” says Ali.
