Support for KZN Floods

Personal message

Massive flooding in Kwazulu-Natal and Eastern Cape, South Africa, has claimed at least 60 lives after multiple structural collapses, and many more residents are still missing and buried under mud and debris.

Since the floods on Monday evening, more than 235 homes have been destroyed or damaged and more than 1000 individuals have been displaced forcing them to take refuge in community halls and churches.

As the global community of SAPeople we can come together to help at this critical time.

To support urgent relief efforts in the region, we have created this crowdfunding campaign to empower local and respected charity, The Gift of the Givers, the largest disaster response NGO of African origin on the African continent. They're on the ground now and in touch with where relief is needed the most.

* All funds raised by this campaign will be directly administered by BackaBuddy NPC and transferred directly to The Gift of the Givers. All donors will qualify for a Section18A tax certificate issued by the organization.

To create your own campaign to support anyone affected by the floods, please complete this form.
