uMthombo is proud to continue to help those who are truly in need. The COVID 19 pandemic & Lockdown has left many families, communities and the most vulnerable in compromising situations.
As part of the COVID 19 relief efforts, uMthombo donated 45 blankets to COGTA in support of their Warm Winter Campaign. The blanket donations were distributed in eThekwini Municipality Wards 4 & 42. uMthombo & COGTA- (Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs) Provincial Department, have been collaborating to bring about relief to communities and individuals who are in distress. In the beginning of winter months, we also distributed 100 blankets to street-connected individuals in derelict buildings, assisted by our partner organisation Domino Foundation. In total 145 blankets were distributed in this strangely cold winter in Durban.
Even though we are now in “Advanced Level 3” Lockdown, we encourage individuals and companies to be advocates of change to this crisis. uMthombo will be gladly welcome any form of support in reaching out to less fortunate compatriots.
Together, we can overcome COVID 19 by taking all necessary precautions and acting responsibly.
