Following the devastation caused by Monday night's thunderstorm which wreaked havoc in KZN, a few Mzansi celebrities such as, Prince Kaybee, Tumi Sole, AKA and Bonang Matheba, have extended a helping hand to the flood victims.
Mzansi is lucky to have such selfless celebrities, who go the extra mile to assist people whenever they can. Monday night's storm in KZN was one such occasion. The raging floods from the heavy downpour claimed several lives and destroyed many homes.
People across the coast and those in rural areas were affected by earth being washed away from under their homes and extensive flooding of land and buildings. Trees were uprooted and buildings collapsed. Families have been left destitute and businesses forced to shut down.
However, thanks to kind celebrities like Prince Kaybee, there is hope. He very generously offered to donate R150 000 to the families that lost their homes in Umlazi. The award-winning singer also urged others to join in on helping rebuild the affected communities. Check out his post below.
