To All Our Social Partners

President Cyril Ramaphosa recently announced measures South Africa will take to combat the spread of Covid-19. Although this is a very challenging time for us as individuals, households, businesses and communities nationally, we all still have the power and responsibility to play our part in stopping the spread of the corona virus.

In light of this, Seriti is committed to taking the necessary precautionary measures. We are following hygienic and preventative guidelines as set out by the health authorities not only in our offices but in all the facilities where we run meetings and workshops. We will also adhere to training smaller groups, limited to less than 50 people.

We have increased the frequency at which we clean our offices and facilities so that our spaces are safe for meetings and training. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our social partners and beneficiaries updated should anything change unexpectedly that affects our operations. We will close our offices should the situation require it.

As a civil society organisation, we have to play our role in protecting and creating awareness in communities about the possible risks. We endeavour to educate ourselves, the communities in which we work and our social partners to follow the proper procedures to protect ourselves and those around us.

During this time we aim to do an awareness drive among the rural and peri-urban communities that we work in, to help them understand different ways they can contribute to reducing the spread of Covid-19. We encourage you to partner with us in supporting this awareness drive and our work in training primary caregivers to practice good hygiene and transfer the knowledge to the children they care for.

Contact us on info@seriti.org.za or call us on 011 262 7700 should you wish to partner with us on this initiative. We all need to work together and create broad-based awareness of this pandemic, especially in marginalised communities. The safety of the South African people is our priority.
