Virgin SA unites to help communities affected by heavy rains

Virgin SA companies are providing immediate relief to those affected by heavy rains in KZN and the Eastern Cape and the cyclones in Mozambique. Combined, these disasters have claimed well over 1000 lives, caused serious injuries and illnesses and many people are missing or displaced. We’ve partnered with Gift of the Givers to support these communities. We need your help to make a difference!
