SASSA to continue providing food vouchers to the needy

Published on

SASSA has committed itself to continue supporting its beneficiaries affected by the unrest, by providing food vouchers to needy families despite the service disruptions in KZN. 

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) pledged to continue to support its beneficiaries who were affected by the civil unrest in the country. SASSA made this announcement on Sunday, 18 July 2021, in a statement informing that it would be reviving the Food Relief Programme that was disrupted by the unrest.

SASSA stated that instead of food parcels, it would be offering social relief of distress in the form of food vouchers. The agency further noted that in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), service providers have been looted and infrastructure has been damaged, which has ultimately disrupted the Food Relief Programme in the province.

SASSA also stated that it is committed to providing social relief of distress in the form of food vouchers to needy families in other parts of the country that are still able to provide services. However, SASSA stated that beneficiaries who already receive a grant do not qualify, and that an application would be required.
