JOHANNESBURG - The Gift of the Givers is currently in Kagiso on the West Rand, providing aid to families affected by recent storms.

A hail storm on Thursday followed by heavy rains, flooded various areas and severely damaged some houses near Krugersdorp in Johannesburg.

The disaster relief organisation's Emily Thomas says they have already handed out several plastic sheeting to residents.

"We're going to count 500 roof sheet, 2,100 metres of plastic sheeting, 1,000 blankets, clothing, and bulk foods will be donated to the food bank because they're preparing hot meals for the people."
