On Sunday (15 March 2020), President Cyril Ramaphosa declared COVID-19 a national disaster. In the wake of this, Save the Children South Africa offices across the country will close temporarily. This closure comes into effect today, 16 March 2020 until further notice.
Save the Children South Africa (SCSA) is saddened by the gruesome discovery of the body of eight-year-old Tazne van Wyk, in a storm water pipe outside Worcester. Tazne went missing in Elsies River, almost two weeks ago. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family.
