URGENT APPEAL

Rebuild South Africa Humanitarian appeal

We are working tirelessly to mobilise relief aid and essential resources to the elderly, the young and the vulnerable within communities directly affected by the unrest.

Rebuild SA Fund is a non-profit organisation, a Relief Fund simply stewarding relief to those in need.

We are providing emergency funding to solid, verified accredited NPOs including the Robin Hood Foundation and Hearts in Hands. Going forward, we hope to help local SME’s rebuild one hopeful moment at a time.

URGENT APPEAL

Rebuild South Africa Humanitarian Appeal

Riots and protests took place in South Africa from 9 to 17 July 2021, in response to the arrest of former President Jacob Zuma. 

On 9 July 2021, the same day KwaZulu-Natal’s High Court upheld his conviction and prison sentence, the unrest began. Public violence, burglary, and malicious damage to property were reported in parts of KwaZulu-Natal, with at least 28 people being arrested and a highway being blocked. The riots continued on the evening of Sunday, 11 July 2021, when multiple news sources indicated reports of gunshots and explosions heard at local malls and residential areas. The violence quickly escalated, and by the morning of Monday, 12 July 2021, multiple companies and malls were forced to close following widespread looting and violence. As of 21 July, 276 people have died due to the unrest, while 3,407 were arrested by 18 July. Initial estimates by the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) puts the losses in excess of R20 billion.

Family, businesses and livelihoods have been affected and are appealing to the public to assist us with donations so we can deploy our network of volunteers and get much needed supplies and essentials to those directly affected by this unrest.
