The eThekwini Municipality has set up an account for donations that will be utilised towards curbing the spread of the pandemic and its after shocks.

The Municipality is already contributing towards the Covid-19 Fund and is also humbly calling on businesses, civil society organisations and residents to kindly donate.

Donations will be utilised to help boost the provision of essential services to those in dire need.

The Fund will be administered by the Municipality’s Treasury Unit, with the support and input of key Business Leaders to assist with guidance and advice.

The necessary State restrictions on social and business activities to combat the spread of the virus have unfortunately resulted in a slowdown in spending, and a loss of income for certain vulnerable residents and organisations.

To help alleviate the negative economic and social impacts that the Covid-19 pandemic is causing on livelihoods and the City’s economy, the Municipality humbly appeals for generous donations.

The Municipality further wishes to appreciate and thank those that have donated in the form of non-perishable food products, hygiene packs, & meals as previously requested. We appeal to all stakeholders to continue lending a helping hand during this global crisis.

The account details are the following:

Account name: EThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, COVID-19 Donation Account

Account number: 1107821525

Nedbank

Branch code :198765
