Islamic Relief is on the ground assessing the ongoing severe rain in KwaZulu Natal. The team is closely working with COGTA & Disaster Management in order to respond quickly and effectively in providing emergency relief to those affected by the devastation.
By donating to our Local Emergency Fund, you will be helping us respond with aid when calamity strikes.
When an emergency strikes, Islamic Relief aims to be the first on the ground, to provide emergency relief and help those affected immediately.
Global and local emergencies place the lives of entire populations in jeopardy with devastating long-term effects. Our Local Emergencies Fund ensures that we can respond to disasters within 72 hours to assist with the recovery to help rebuild lives.
At Islamic Relief, we not only save lives, we help rebuild them – we stick around even after the situation has calmed, helping families put their lives back together again. Where people are affected by the same disasters over and over, we think about how to prepare these people before an emergency strikes.
By donating to our Local Emergencies Fund, you can help ensure that when an emergency hits, we can respond quickly – without our teams having to launch a public appeal – thereby reducing the impact on people’s lives.
Our team is on the ground at the Kennedy Road Settlement in Durban where a fire broke out. We are currently distributing food and water, while our team conducts a rapid needs assessment.
