Kwazulu Natal Floods April 2022 -“State of Disaster”

Kwazulu Natal Floods April 2022 -“State of Disaster”

South Africa Declared “A National State of Disaster”

https://www.enca.com/news/ramaphosa-declares-national-state-disaster

ACT Africa extends our heartfelt sympathies to all families who have lost everything, their loved ones, homes, jobs and businesses  in the recent Kwazulu Natal Floods.

This natural disaster has once more plunged the province of KZN into desperation and thus vulnerabilities are raw and exposed. This has a direct ripple effect on the rest of the provinces of South Africa. Socio-Economic downturn which leads to Poverty is worsened as a result…

Natural Disasters, Times of War, Political Turmoil are all perfect storms for criminal predators who will take advantage of these very tragic situations as people are desperate to survive and fall prey as victim and or perpertrator to atrocities like Human Trafficking. Frustration and Depression levels are heightened too and sadly Gender-Based Violence & Femocide increases resultantly.

What Do We Do?

  • We Pray Firstly
  • Reach out and help as best as we can
  • Donate in Cash or Kind to organisations assisting with the Kwazulu Natal Flooding Disaster and or directly to individuals/families impacted by it.
