The heavy rain and floods that took place last month in KwaZulu-Natal caused many people to seek shelter and refuge at many establishments and organisations. The Hollywood Foundation immediately responded and launched the #HandsOfHope campaign. The campaign has touched many lives throughout the province, including members within Umlazi “M” Community.
Nomthandazo Sithole, a representative for Umlazi “M” Community, explained that the adverse weather conditions left many people destitute and in need of assistance. People watched as their homes washed away, including their belongings. On 12 May 2022, the Team was proud to visit the organisation, to contribute food hampers and blankets to assist vulnerable individuals. The food hampers were comprised of essential food items, such as rice, maize meal and canned food.
