Flood Relief

Heavy rains and flooding in parts of KwaZulu-Natal in early May, left hundreds of families in dire need of food, water, clothing, and household items.

The Jamiatul Ulama KZN Project H.E.L.P team were inundated with calls for assistance in various areas around KZN. The team visited the affected areas to assess the damage and determine the immediate needs of the families in those areas.

Many had no water, lost their personal possessions as well as basic appliances, which they relied upon.  To ease their plight, families were given water containers, bottled water, appliances and repairs were carried out to several homes.

In the Marianhill and Inanda areas, Jojo tanks were also installed.




Alhamdulillah, the Jamiat KZN assisted with the installation of a Borehole in the Chatsworth area which was completed a few days before the flooding. This borehole was instrumental in providing water to the flood stricken area. It served as central point for the distribution of water in the area and was much appreciated by the community.


Financial Aid

Tongaat was among the hardest hit, by the floods. According to latest reports the town is still without running water. Several organizations are assisting in the area, with the Project HELP team partnering with local organisations and providing financial assistance towards the water crisis.



Winter Warmth

As we know, the Eastern Cape suffers amongst the coldest winters in the country. The Project H.E.L.P team received a request for blankets to assist the needy who were having to endure the bitter cold in the area. Approximately 100 blankets were distributed in the informal settlements surrounding the Malabar region of Gqeberha (PE).


Water Distribution

Following the flood damage to various aqueducts in the Durban area, maintenance and repairs were being carried out by the municipality across the city. Subsequently many areas were left without water. A water distribution drive was carried out and bottled water was distributed in the Durban CBD. Arrangements were also made for water tankers to drive around the CBD, distributing water.




Requests were received from two females, one a single mother of three children and the other a divorcee. Both were seeking to empower themselves by setting up home industries. After conducting the necessary assessments, the Project H.E.L.P team assisted them by providing the necessary startup equipment as well as financial aid to get them up and running.

May Allah Ta’ala reward all the donors, well-wishers, sponsors and all other involved abundantly.
