Johannesburg, South Africa (01 August 2021) – It is been over 3 weeks since Gauteng and the KwaZulu-Natal provinces faced devastating social unrest that brought both fear and more uncertainty.

This at a time when the country’s still battling a pandemic and trying to revive its battered economy.

But at the same time, we saw the tide turning as South Africans did what they know best – joined hands to clean up and rebuild what had been destroyed by the unrest. Inspired by their spirit of generosity – Ubuntu, South Africans stood together against a force that threatened to destroy everything they stand for.

A simple Facebook post created a beautiful idea that reverberated around the country and started a movement to Rebuild SA!

We chat to the three co-founders of this incredible initiative – Emelda Masango, Mbali Ndhlovu and Natalie Church.
