It is hereby agreed that following discussions held during the period 10th
to 13th May between Bronwen Jones, representing "Children of Fire", Collen Mudau,
representing Joe Slovo Squatter Camp and Brian O'Dell, representing the town
of Wivenhoe in Essex, UK, that Brian O'Dell shall use his best endeavours to:
1. Provide a building sufficient in size to be able to be used for a Community
Centre (to include facilities for use as a crèche and library) and a
building of sufficient size to be used as a clinic and a short-term hospice.
2. Shall continue further to expand ideas and establish guidelines that could
enable the shacks in Joe Slovo Camp to be replaced by new housing of a type
suitable for easy erection and permanent establishment.
3. That the parties hereto and their advisors shall try to establish a pilot
scheme for suitable new housing at Joe Slovo Squatter Camp, which would enable
that housing to be mainly manufactured in South Africa and which will fall in
line with South African Government regulations, both budgetary and regulatory.
4. And that the parties shall use their best endeavours to employ and train
residents from Joe Slovo Squatter Camp for as many aspect of the above projects
