Naspers has donated R1 million in support of disaster relief and recovery efforts in Durban and the wider KwaZulu-Natal coastal area in South Africa following the devastating floods.
“We are deeply saddened by the impact that the floods have had on the communities in Durban and the South Coast area. We send our sincerest condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in the floods,” said Aileen O’Toole, Chief People Officer of Naspers.
“We encourage other corporates to also make donations and support the call from the South African government to provide much-needed relief.”
Naspers has committed R1 million to the Gift of the Givers, a world-renowned NGO already on the ground supporting disaster management teams working in the area.
Gift of the Givers will disburse the funds where most needed, including logistical support with helicopters and ambulances, as well as aid directly to communities and families who have suffered severe and material loss in the storm.
