Emergency Response - South Africa
More than 70 lives have been lost and many reported missing as violent riots and looting continue to
rage through South Africa. What initially started out as protests has turned into deadly riots resulting in a shortage of food and medication, along with extreme damages to supply chains.
Help us support those in need across South Africa.
The Current Situation
Many families, especially mothers and children, are in urgent need of food and medication as pharmacies have also been looted and burnt down. Hundreds of families are currently living in fear of starvation as it is unclear how long this unrest will last.
Penny Appeal's Response
Penny Appeal are on the ground providing food and cash distributions to communities that have been most affected. £50 can help provide food for an entire family for one month and £120 can support an entire family for one month, providing them with safety, shelter, food and medication.
Wherever or whenever crisis strikes, we’re here to help.
Our Emergency Response teams are experts at quickly, efficiently and compassionately helping people survive war, famine and natural disasters.
People in poorer countries are at least five times more likely to be displaced by extreme weather than people in rich countries. All of these issues are the most devastating to the people who have the least resources to cope with them – the world’s poorest, most marginalised people.
These people are suffering through no fault of their own.
We have to help.
