The Solidarity Fund is set to wrap up its operations at the end of September 2022.

The fund has, since its launch, received just under R3.8 billion in pledges, distributing an estimated R3.3 billion to fight the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Spokesperson, Didi Masoetsa says the initiative has served its purpose.


Masoetsa says the fund has a lot of successes to celebrate.

The fund had distributed in excess of R170-million to the national Vaccination Roll-out Programme.

Masoetsa says the funds were allocated to more than 200 Government-owned vaccination sites where, to date, more than 850,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccine had been distributed.

Masoetsa says the fund could be called back into operation, in the future, should the need arise.
