Coega relief hampers for Durban flood victims

Home Business Management Disaster Management Coega relief hampers for Durban flood victims

AS KwaZulu-Natal continues to count the cost of the floods that have ravaged the province, the Coega Development Corporation has provided flood relief hampers in greater Durban.

“Having witnessed the damage caused by the floods first hand and the destruction it has inflicted in people’s lives, we just couldn’t sit back and do nothing,” said Andile Ntloko, CDC Programme Director in KwaZulu-Natal.

Supported by their head office in Gqeberha and working with the Department of Education, an overnight trip was made to provide a truck load of essential supplies to the “most vulnerable” of eThekwini.

Affected families and communities are set to receive hampers consisting of blankets, bottled water, rice and canned foods.

“With the floods estimated to have affected over 13 million households, we appreciate the little that we’ve done may be limited, however, in the eyes of someone in need, it certainly goes a long way,” Ntloko said.
