As we navigate through the peak of infections in South Africa, the best way to support those in need is to provide protection from transmission and support people emotionally. If you are able to give, no matter how much, we’ll make sure it goes a long way. By donating any amount, once-off or on a regular basis, you are ensuring more people in South Africa will both survive and recover from the impact of Covid-19.

Your donations will support the following vetted, impactful organisations providing life-saving physical and mental health support:




Mental Health

The Counselling Hub is a low-cost counselling service that supports individuals in facing their life challenges. During Covid-19 in-person counselling has pivoted to tele counselling – a life-saving service to mitigate the effect of feelings of fear, anxiety, sadness, and uncertainty which are heightened at this time. Clients can access 4-6 sessions, once a week, for free or by donation.

Medical PPE

Masks4Medics is working to alleviate the overwhelmed health systems and hospitals by providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers caring for ill Covid-19 patients in home-based care facilities. This intervention includes the provision of and training in the use of monitors (pulse oximeters) and thermometers as well as the critical PPE which includes gowns, masks, visors and gloves and sanitizers.

change beneficiaries over time.
