“We had to interrupt our programs due to the extended lockdown period”, Stevie Megens, Country Director of FXB South Africa says, “and were unable to be in direct contact with our beneficiaries, many of whom rely on FXB’s services daily”.

“All these people needed our help, now more than ever: many guardians or parents lost their jobs and income, and lacked basic necessities and food to feed their children. The increase in the rise of domestic violence to pandemic proportions throughout the country also had a major negative impact on children and families alike”, Stevie adds. “Thankfully we were able to rise to these challenges and make sure our children were kept safe through our constant communication with our beneficiaries and their families”
