South Africa: Support for Families Affected By Storms

press release

The Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu – Natal is deeply concerned about the wide-spread destruction and devastation caused by the incessant rains that have lashed the province.

“At a time when families are supposed to be celebrating the festive period, many are mourning the loss of loved ones and countless others are facing a bleak future having lost their homes and possessions,” said Hon. Les Govender, Shadow MEC for Social Development.

The IFP urges the department to speed up relief efforts to alleviate the plight of those affected by the rains. The IFP also commends all those NGO’s, CBOs, religious institutions and individuals whose generosity of spirit has brought hope to families in this time of distress.
