Masks for Good Distribution
In partnership with #MasksforGood, Diepkloof Square distributed 5 000 free washable masks to the community of Diepkloof. The distribution co-incided with the April grant pay-out dates to prioritize distribution to the elderly and most vulnerable members of the community.
COVID-19 Hand Washing Basins

Each elderly recipient also received a blanket for the harsh cold weather.
