The Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority (HWSETA) in collaboration with The Community Chest supports vulnerable communities across South Africa, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Coalition of the Committed connects a network of development stakeholders, to achieve its mission of bringing a real-time data driven investment approach to distributing healthcare products and services to those most affected by the pandemic.
“The pandemic presented us with a unique opportunity to reach beyond our skills development responsibility. When we became aware of Community Chest’s work in response to the pandemic, we identified them as an ideal partner. Through their initiatives, communities are provided with much needed assistance and support, whilst gathering critical data, which further enables an effective response to the needs of all affected by the pandemic. Together, we are now able to contribute to a better life for all South Africans.“
HWSETA Provincial Manager
“The COVID-19 Health Fund was our immediate response to a crisis that we knew would overwhelm the poor, the marginalized, the destitute, those living in densely populated informal settlements. As an organisation whose mission it is to build a nation of active citizens, it became our duty to remember our roots and take meaningful action. Finding a like-minded partner like the HWSETA is the partnerships we constantly work towards.“
