Covid-19 Response:

During 2020 we undertook a series of emergency response approaches to COVID-19. Specifically, we aim to support those who are excluded from mainstream efforts to protect against the spread of COVID-19 and to mitigate its impacts. We also acknowledge that COVID-19 and the associated lockdowns have significantly impacted the social landscape in South Africa. We have therefore identified strategies for each of the 10 opportunities which we will prioritise as we adjust to a post-COVID society.
