The flooding that took place in KwaZulu-Natal after the Easter holidays has devastated that province and everyone who cares about it, and the people who call it home. The Nelson Mandela Foundation, together with its partners, has answered the call to action and is collecting donations to assist families and communities that have been badly affected.
With the death toll over 400, many are still missing and over 40 000 people have been displaced in Durban alone. Families have lost their homes and all of their belongings, and have been left destitute.
If you would like to show your support and solidarity, the Foundation is accepting blankets, clothing, construction and housing materials as well as furniture, sanitary pads and baby products. Monetary donations on our GivenGain platform will go towards food and other emergency supplies.
The Foundation has partnered with IT-Labs who will provide a dedicated local team of young
graduates to deliver relief supplies. Anant Singh has made available the VideoVision Entertainment Group KZN studio as a storage & distribution hub.
We are grateful to our partners and stakeholders who make this work possible. No contribution is too small to make a meaningful impact in this tragic moment during very difficult times.
