On Wednesday, the Solidarity Fund mentioned that it had gotten more than R3 billion since it was launched about seven months ago.

A lot of businesses and individuals have been donated, in a bid to support the country’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country and to serve as a contribution to humanitarian relief efforts, as the lockdown dragged the economy to an effective halt.

So far, the fund has assigned R2.2 billion to several projects.

It’s been a tremendous and inspiring show of national and global unity in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequence of the lockdown,” said the fund’s deputy chairperson Adrian Enthoven.

Enthoven mentioned that some of their projects were already completed or about to be completed.

In line with our commitment to ongoing transparency and accountability, the fund is issuing reports as and when initial information on impact becomes available. Last month, we issued six new reports across our pillars and a further four are scheduled to come out by month-end,” he said.
