FORGOTTEN WOMEN OF COVID19 PROJECT LAUNCHED
Woman of Stature has recognised the need to launch a fundraising initiative to support the “Forgotten Women of COVID19”.
We have realised that much of the funding initiatives provided by Government or other sources has either run out, or do not recognise all women who are not being assisted by these existing interventions.
The Woman of Stature Foundation will be complimenting these funding initiatives by helping those women whose do not qualify and are in need.
For example; are not BEE compliant; have unregistered businesses; are not essential services; work on contract; have lost their jobs; cannot find a job and who, because of lock down, have lost their businesses and income overnight, but still have a family to support and have no means of income.…
These are the Forgotten Women of COVID19.
