FORMATION OF THE STOREHOUSE
“The Storehouse” was formed on 1 September 2000 when floods hit Mozambique and Mpumalanga. At this time we felt that there is a need to be mobilized and prepared to help those who suffer from disasters such as floods, earthquakes etc., by having basic items such as food, clothing, furniture, etc. on hand. Should a natural disaster occur, or a home be destroyed through fire, as many in our country do, due to lack of proper housing, we would be able to distribute these items immediately wherever possible.
The Storehouse was started in the year 2000 by Audrey Atherton in Sunnyside Pretoria. It later moved to Hatfield
Christian Church where it was taken over by Isabell Treurnich in September 2010.
