means “send me”. The COVID-19 pandemic is the most definitive “Thuma Mina” moment for our country.
Never before in the history of our democracy has our country been confronted by such a severe situation; however, it is a situation that we will be able to overcome if we work together.
Across our country, people and organisations have offered to help and the Solidarity Fund is a vehicle that will be set up to facilitate this.
Through this Fund, we aim to:
Prevent the spread of the disease by supporting measures to “flatten the curve” and lower infection rates.
Detect and understand the magnitude of the disease.
Care for those in hospital or medical care.
Support those whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic.
The Solidarity Fund will be independently administered and will work with other initiatives to achieve these objectives.
Through this Fund, individuals and organisations will be able to support these efforts through secure, tax-deductible donations. The Fund will operate with the highest principles of corporate governance and through an independent Board. All activities will be reported in a transparent manner.
The Fund administration will be done through professional managers and organisations in the private sector.
The President of South Africa has appointed Ms Gloria Serobe as the Chairperson of the Fund.
