The Fresh Hands Campaign

Campaign Initiative

Our team aims to identify, manage and action projects linking relevant needs and resources in an attempt to reduce infection rates through high-risk communities in South Africa during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our primary activities are aimed at connecting individuals and businesses with the resource capacity to assist grass-roots initiatives who we recognise as being effective at identifying relevant needs and enabling equitable distribution.

A huge thanks to the ladies at KiND for the support.

We’ll be updating our progress below in phases. Please get in touch if you have relevant ideas and/or resources.
