South Africa Emergency

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.
