Storm Eloise: Limpopo Release Relief Packages To Flood-ravaged Communities

South African Weather Services Cyclone Eloise affected Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal

SOUTH AFRICA, PRETORIA – An assessment by social workers and community development practitioners and other government officials identified 78 families based mainly in the Vhembe District.

Other affected families are in the Thulamela, Collins Chabane, Musina, Makhado, and Greater Letaba local municipalities.

“The teams of dedicated social workers and community development practitioners, as well as disaster management officers from the district and local municipalities, are hard at work assisting the affected households,” Limpopo MEC for social development, Nkakareng Rakgoale, said.

The Limpopo department of social development said the relief packages, in the form of food parcels, dignitary packs, blankets and other basic amenities are currently being distributed to the affected households.

Some families were displaced as a result of the incessant rain linked to the devastating tropical cyclone Eloise which wrecked parts of Mozambique over the weekend.

Limpopo authorities said the number of affected community members may increase as assessments are continuing in the affected areas.
