South African COVID-19 pandemic
Our country, like the rest of the world is grappling with the effects of the Covid19 pandemic which saw the President of the Republic of South Africa announcing a complete economic and social lockdown of the country on the 26th March to date with gradual levels but still with tight regulations.
While the government has been doing its utmost best to contain the spread of the virus, with continued help to those who are infected and affected, the consequences of the pandemic are visible and felt mostly by the destitute communities.
To be true to the mission of Jesus Christ whereby He looked at the needs of the people, provided a solution and then began to preach the gospel, we felt that we also have a role to play; making sure that the basic needs of our people are taken care of during this inauspicious time. Our support to the vulnerable is executed through our different drives i.e. feeding schemes and food donations.
