Mbizana community comes together to aid families affected by floods


The Wild Coast Sun has joined the relief efforts aimed at helping communities devastated by the flooding which hit the eastern parts of South Africa last week.

Together with the Mayor of the Winnie Madikizela-Mandela Local Municipality, Daniswa Mafumbatha, the Wild Coast Sun sought to support around 30 families affected by the recent heavy rains in Mbizana in the Eastern Cape. 


“Thankfully our region was less affected by the floods, compared to the northern coast, but there are those that needed help in our community,” says Peter Tshidi, Wild Coast Sun’s general manager.


Thirty families lost their homes, and the resort was part of a group of local businesses and community leaders that come together to provide aid to these families.


Wild Coast Sun donated 30 mattresses and bedding valued at over R30,000.


Tshidi said: “We hope the families are able to sleep a little easier tonight after the turmoil they have been through.”
