Local disaster relief group helps flood-affected families rebuild

A Durban disaster relief organisation says there is still a lot work to be done to help communities affected by last month's floods.

CityHope says while many have sought shelter from relatives and friends, there is still a long list of destitute families.

The organisation says it's now rebuilding and repairing damaged homes and schools in the Chatworth and uMlazi areas.
