Mariannridge Community Hall in Durban, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, is where people temporarily stay after being displaced by the worst rains in decades in mid-April this year. There are 97 temporary housing facilities for this purpose in South Africa.

The scars from the heavy rains that remain on the hearts of the flood victims
are still evident, but the interest and support for them is decreasing.
Every day, they are struggling to find a meal at the facilities.

On July 6, officials from the Department of Social Development in South Africa and
local members of the Intl. WeLoveU Foundation (hereinafter referred to as the “WeLoveU”) met to discuss over how to support the flood victims. Then, they decided to help a total of 500 flood victims who are staying in four temporary housing facilities in Durban. This area suffered more damage from floods and landslides than other areas. The WeLoveU bought groceries such as cornmeal, soybeans, sugar, canned food, soaps, toothpastes, diapers, and sanitary supplies, and packed relief boxes.

On August 8, the Mariannridge Community Hall was full of vitality after a long time.
As the relief boxes were displayed, the people gathered to sing and dance with joy.

The Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu said to the flood victims,
“We will make more efforts to fasten the process of preparing stable shelters.
While I was worried about how to handle the meals for you living here,
the WeLoveU reached out their hands to help us. I truly thank the WeLoveU so much.
Please say thank you to Chairwoman Zahng Gil-jah as well.”

After the ceremony, the WeLoveU members, Minister Zulu, and the flood victims
shouted, “We Love You,” to each other with all their strength.

“We love you!”

“Thank you for giving courage and strength to the people here.We love you!”

“Thank you for giving courage and strength to the people here. We love you!”

“Thank you for visiting us without forgetting. We love you!”

They were happy and joyful that they had not been forgotten
even though they were still dealing with the aftermath of the disaster.
Wherever there are difficulties, the WeLoveU goes and makes a world
where no one is lonely, through appropriate emergency relief efforts.
