The South African Solidarity Fund was created as a rapid response vehicle designed to fund impactful initiatives that are augmenting the national health response, contributing to a national humanitarian effort and mobilising South Africans to act to stop the virus and support their compatriots.
Please join the us to learn directly from four leading figures from the Solidarity Fund who will update us on what they are doing to make a difference to South Africans in need, and how we can help.
o What key issues will the Solidarity Fund work to address? o How can the Fund have more effect than individual charities? o What has been achieved to date and who ensures effective resource use? o How will the Fund unite the country and be truly nationwide? o Who is involved on the ground making things happen? o Who have been reached and what difference has it made? o If I donated £100, what difference would that make? Is it tax deductible in the UK or SA? o What is the Fund's next focus and why?
