Gloria Serobe (Solidarity Fund) is one of SA's most important people right now
The Solidarity Fund was created on 23 March 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa.
It’s a platform for anyone from the public, civil society as well as the public and private sector to contribute to a consolidated fund for a variety of initiatives.
The Fund functions independently of the government and the businesses or individuals who donate to it.
Serobe heads the Solidarity Fund.
