THE SOLIDARITY FUND Q2 2022 UPDATE

Johannesburg, 21 June 2022 – In March this year, the Solidarity Fund, whose mandate was intently focused on rapid-response to the COVID-19 pandemic – announced that it would wrap up its operations with complete closure coming into effect at the end of September 2022 following a resolution taken by the Board in February. It was also announced that the Fund will continue to exist in a state of dormancy, with the expectation that it can remobilise rapidly and effectively should another national crisis happen again.

Solidarity Fund To Support And Augment Government’s Response To KZN And Eastern Cape Flooding

Johannesburg, 19 April 2022 - The Solidarity Fund has resolved to support and augment the National Government's response to the recent floods in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, and the resultant devastating after-effects on both infrastructure and broader society in these areas and further afield.

Intervention

The HCRF was established with a clear focus on alleviating the consequences of the July protests in South Africa. To have the maximum impact on the lives of those affected by these riots, the HCRF aims to implement a rapid and coordinated response. The goal is to mobilise and coordinate the financial and in-kind contributions from individual donors, governmental and non-governmental organisations, as well as the international community. Disbursements from the HCRF are aimed at combatting the resulting food and medical crisis caused by the protest action. Together, we can rebuild, through our unity and solidarity.

Food Relief

Through the collaborative efforts of the HCRF, The Department of Social Development (DSD) and the Provincial House of Traditional Leaders (PHTL), various projects have begun with the aim of providing access to food to those who were affected by the protest action through the delivery of food parcels.

Medical Support

Medical infrastructure (such as collection points for chronic medication) also experienced the negative consequences of the protests, with many people unable to access medical services. The Fund will focus support on this critical area as a part of its overall health support to ensure people are once again able to access these services.

Business Recovery

With the unfortunate and subsequent damage to local businesses, the HCRF has committed itself to helping small and local businesses recover from the devastating consequences of the damage and loss of employment many people experienced after the protest action. Projects aimed at business recovery are currently under review by the HCRF.
