Responding to disasters locally & Internationally
We deliver disaster aid to communities and nations affected by disaster situations irrespective of race, religion, culture, ethnicity or political affiliation
Disaster strikes when we least expect it, and it's in these moments that we come together to uplift and support those affected. The Thabo Mbeki informal settlement recently faced a significant setback, with 13 people severely affected.
The recent flood rains had a devastating impact on communities across the PINK region of KZN - Phoenix, Inanda, Ntuzuma, KwaMashu, and surrounding areas. In Cato Crest alone, 463 individuals were affected by this tragedy. CityHope Disaster Relief took action to bring immediate assistance. Last Saturday, we distributed food and hygiene parcels to each affected household in Cato Crest, providing essential support during that challenging time.
Cyclone Cheneso hit Madagascar on the northern coast from January 19th to the 23rd, causing devastating damage to infrastructure such as houses and schools. The strong winds and heavy rainfall disrupted transportation by cutting off several national roads, making it difficult for people to get around. Tragically, the storm resulted in at least 138 fatalities and the destruction of hundreds of homes. Approximately 130,000 people have been displaced as a result.
