are living in unprecedented times, and each day brings new developments as the
COVID-19 situation is evolving around the world.
Africa has been in lockdown since the 27th of March and the closing
of the economy is affecting the most vulnerable within our very unequal
all Children of the Dawn’s community care centres closed on the 27th
of March 2020, being available to assist our children remains our priority.
Leading up to the lockdown, our ground teams partook in exercises educating our
children, their families, and the communities at large about the COVID-19 and
methods to assist in flattening the curve.
we have embarked on a major food relief drive, organising and delivering some
850 food and hygiene parcels during the month of April. Our ground teams are
keeping in close contact with all our beneficiaries through phone and home
visits, making sure they are safe. We are also trying to make a plan to allow
our tertiary students to have access to their classes online. On the sport
front, we are proud that our rope skippers are training at home in all our 8
areas and reporting on the progress of their routine via social media.
would like to share that all our relief efforts done during the National
Lockdown are in accordance and with the guidelines of the lockdown protocol. We
are in constant talks with the local authorities and other stakeholders and we
will not do any work without their permission and knowledge. We also have put
in place strict measures to ensure the safety of our staff who will be working
on the ground during this epidemic.
thank all our donors, sponsors and the corporate partners who are supporting us
through these extremely challenging time, showing once more the #powerofcare.
