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.
