LIST : Covid-19 relief charities you can donate to

As we face the coronavirus pandemic head-on, South African NGOs and NPOs are hard at work ensuring that the most vulnerable get the resources they need the most.

DURBAN – For millions of South Africans, hunger is a consistent issue, and sourcing a meal during the lockdown can be a very difficult task. As we face the coronavirus pandemic head-on, South African NGOs and NPOs are hard at work ensuring that the most vulnerable get the resources they need the most.

You can also give back without leaving your home or during your shopping run for essentials. MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet is South Africa’s largest community loyalty programme that supports schools, charities and environmental organisations. The programme allows supporters to select beneficiaries and make a contribution by shopping at one of their partner stores, including Loot.co.za, Woolworths and WorkSheet Cloud. A donation will be made on your behalf to your chosen beneficiaries – at no cost to you. For a full list of partners and beneficiaries or to sign up for a MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card, visit myschool.co.za or download the app.

Here is a list of local NGOs and NPOs that have set up Covid-19-specific campaigns to help bring relief to the communities and individuals who need it most:
