Relief Assistance for Flood Victims Needed Urgently

The Durban University of Technology (DUT) is seeking assistance from staff and students in collecting items to donate to the victims of the recent floods that caused havoc in the province (KwaZulu-Natal).

It has been reported that several people have been left homeless, seriously injured, missing and a shocking number of fatalities. While mop-up operations in affected areas such as Umlazi, Chatsworth, Malvern, New Germany, Pinetown, Shallcross, Reservoir Hills and Marianhill are still underway, dozens of the victims are left without food, clothes or shelter etc.
