To assist its members, QASA has launched a COVID-19 Relief Fund aimed at providing financial relief to those most affected by the national lockdown. QASA Chief Operating Officer, Raven Benny, says: “QASA is cautious of the effect the national lockdown will have on its members. “Many rely solely on the meagre R1 860 per month disability grant from SASSA, while others have lost the chance of earning income from not being able to return to work,” he adds.
While QASA will be committing some of its own money to the fund, the organisation is calling on all South Africans, with a little to spare, to donate. Donations can be made on the QASA BackaBuddy campaign page, which you can find here, or via EFT to:
Account holder: QASA
Account number: 730570406
Branch code: 632 005
QASA members who require assistance can contact the QASA head office during office hours (08h00 to 16h00) at 031 767 0348 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
