President Ramaphosa: Vulnerable citizens to be helped from starvation during the lockdown
The government will this week provide information on direct interventions to shield the most vulnerable citizens from the grim prospect of starvation, according to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Writing in his weekly newsletter, Ramaphosa said South Africans are currently facing many difficulties but, “wondering where their next meal will come from shouldn’t be one of them.
The president says “alleviating hunger is not an act of charity” but “an imperative for every society that is founded on respect for human rights”. He also acknowledges that food support can only be a short-term emergency measure.
This, he says, will need to be matched by sustainable economic solutions. Coronavirus Hotline Number: 0800 029 999 from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday Help protect your loved ones by sharing this official South African government COVID-19 service with your family, friends and community.
