Gift of the Givers was the main recipient of all monies and donations as they are structured to handle the logistics of donation distribution.


The Gift of the Givers Foundation is Africa’s largest disaster relief organisation! Over the years they have distributed over R2 billion in aid to 42 countries around the world, including South Africa.

The foundation has been sharing pictures of all the work they have done since the fires, so if you donated and felt curious about how it helped, here are some images of everything the foundation has done with your help!

These are just a select few images, there are hundreds of photo’s available to be seen.
