Here’s How You Can Help Those Affected by Xenophobia.


With all the recent disturbing Xenophobic/Afrophobic attacks happening in South Africa, we at Social SA have decided to take part in the Stop Xenophobiainitiatives. We would really appreciate it if you can join us and help take a stand against Xenophobia by getting involved in donating to the refugee camps or by giving a helping hand where you can, prayers will be greatly appreciated too.

We have pulled some information together about all the different initiatives taking place to make it easier for you to find out how you can help. Lets join forces and STOP #Xenophobia – I am African before I am South African.
