Poverty, inequality and unemployment crippled South Africa before COVID-19 and will continue to do so long after this crisis is over but our actions today will determine whether we emerge from this national state of disaster weaker or stronger than we were before.
The pandemic is a stark reminder of how unequal our society is. According to Stats SA (2017) one in three South Africans lived on less than R797 a month and the majority of the families have multiple children. Most of these children are in our townships and have no idea where their next meal will come from. There is no denying that the poor are hardest hit and children will experience the pain.
