The Solidarity Fund was designed as a rapid response vehicle to mobilise South Africa in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting health, humanitarian and social consequences. Having received in excess of R3 Billion in the form of donations, the Fund works to augment the government’s response to this unprecedented challenge by assisting existing programmes and initiatives across all 9 provinces. Inspired by our nation’s resolve, unity and spirit, we are committed to creating impact through our ongoing work to manage and, eventually, contain this virus.

Fulfilling our mandate

It’s easy to look at numbers as an indication of the success of the work undertaken by the Solidarity Fund. Certainly, the contributions by business and individuals have been inspiring. The truth is, however, our work is about individuals – the millions of people who have been made vulnerable by the COVID-19 crisis. While the Fund’s work has been made possible by numbers, it can only really be judged by the lives we have touched.

Systemic and Community-Based Organisation Grants

In February 2021, the Solidarity Fund’s Selection and Evaluation Panel approved systemic and community-based organisation grants as part of its GBV II initiative. This large-scale, national response to the challenge of GBV in the country – with total funding of R75 million – falls within the Fund’s broader humanitarian initiatives

Thank you, and Solidarity Fund emergency contact details

On behalf of Tandi Nzimande and the Solidarity Fund Board and Executive Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you – our partners, donors and volunteers – for your immense support, spirit and strength during a year full of hard work, challenges and successes.
