Responding to the urgent water shortage in Embo township schools, CityHope Disaster Relief distributed 1000 liters of water across local primary and high schools. At Khabazela High School, the situation was critical, with students dependent on a poorly maintained jojo tank for drinking water, disrupting education and forcing early school dismissals.
The recent heavy rains that have hit KZN from the 10th of January have left multiple communities in distress. In the Kwanyuswa community, many families were displaced. In partnership with Ethekwini Disaster Management and with the help of dedicated community leaders, we were able to provide essential aid to 3 families in Kwanyuswa.
The KZN region has been devastated by catastrophic floods, affecting numerous communities. Homes have been damaged, and essential supplies are desperately needed. CityHope Disaster Relief is mobilising an urgent response to supply essential items.
A fire swept through Joe Slovo settlement, Langa, destroying the homes and belongings of 65 families. While it took a long time to clear the area and arrange for the distribution of essentials, Beautiful Gate partnered with Hand of Grace (Langa Baptist Church) to ensure our Buckets of Hope reached those affected.
In the wake of a devastating fire that broke out in Sesikhona Settlement, Philippi East, CityHope Disaster Relief immediately sprang into action, providing Buckets of Hope to 27 affected families.
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.
