Nemato Change a Life June 2020 activitie report

On-line maths class in progress
On-line maths class in progress

The introduction of stringent lock-down measures in South Africa at the end of March 2020 owing to the Covid 19 pandemic has curtailed virtually all of our activities over the past three months. No sporting activities have been permitted until recently, and throughout April everyone was confined to their places of residence.

As the lock-down measures have slowly been relaxed, we have to some extent been able to gradually redirect our energies in other directions. For example we implemented on-line maths classes for selected members although access to sufficient air time has been a challenge. Recently however the mobile phone network supplier Vodacom gave us a special data discount as a non prifit organisation for education. We also attended to some outstanding maintenance of our building.

The municipality had given us special permits to leave our residences and use our two vehicles to participate in a food parcel distribution initiative. To date we have delivered some 5 000 food parcels to those families in our community whose ability to earn a living have been most adversely affected by the lock-down.

Although we have studiously observed the lock-down measures, one of our members contracted the Covid 19 virus. Nevertheless we are happy to report that she is on the road to recovery. Now that participation in non-contact sports is allowed once more, we are able to resume our rowing programme. Although we have also re-commenced with our out-door gymnastics programme, we are still looking for a suitable indoor venue.
