Since the start of the lockdown, members of the Environment & Health Research Unit have been making donations to feeding schemes near SAMRC offices in Johannesburg and Durban. At last count R6650.00 had been donated to:
- African Children’s Feeding Scheme in Alexandra Township (Johannesburg);
- Needy families identified by the Susan Ngcobo Primary School in Durban; and
- The Solidarity Fund.
Unit members intend to continue making contributions to these and other causes for the duration of the Lockdown period.
