South Africans are taking to social media to start or join groups to begin cleaning up and rebuilding towns affected by the violence and looting seen across the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng in the past few days.

The outpouring of concern by ordinary South Africans on social media platforms who have offered to volunteer time and resources to those businesses and people affected by the civil unrest has led to a number of organisations and NGOs developing plans to assist. Below are links to groups you can join and forms you can fill out to be contacted if you want to join the #RebuildSA project.
