As South Africans united to support those affected by the recent xenophobic attacks in the country, Stuttaford Van Lines’ branch in Durban offered the Gift of the Givers NGO assistance by transporting much-needed donations to affected communities in the region.
Responding swiftly to the humanitarian crisis that resulted from the xenophobia, several NGOs established Safe Haven camps around the country for displaced foreigners. In Durban Stuttaford Van Lines partnered with Unilever, and assisted the Gift of the Givers as they distributed R1 million worth of donated supplies – ranging from mattresses to hygiene products – to several of these camps.
SVL’s Durban branch provided a truck to transport these supplies to the Isipingo Soccer Ground and Chatsworth Westcliff ground, staff to assist, and donations of food, clothing, blankets and other essentials. If you also want to support the Gift of the Givers, you can visit www.giftofthegivers.org
