The Department of Social Development says some 10-thousand households countrywide will begin receiving financial assistance today after their homes were destroyed by natural disasters.

Department spokesperson Lumka Oliphant says the assistance is the final phase of providing relief.

Twenty-eight municipalities were declared disaster areas by Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka in January. The relief effort will start in Gauteng.
