Donated house demonstrates benefits of clay brick

A new home built by Corobrik in Lwandle, Strand, is a “dream come true” for disabled resident Angelina Msizi – and a tangible way for Corobrik to show its support for the rights of women and children. The house is a part of the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements new Siyazama housing project which consists of 82 units.  Speaking at the official handover ceremony in April, which was attended by Bonginkosi Madikizela, Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Corobrik director Bertha Zwane said that the house had been built both as a way for the company to give back to those in need and to demonstrate the appropriateness of double skin clay brick construction with a face brick exterior wall as a ‘best solution’ for sustainable housing in terms of economic, social and environmental considerations.
