Raising the funds to compensate for the added salary costs over the next 3 months is proving challenging, but we can ensure that our hardworking team can be timeously remunerated. COVID-19 has had huge economic impacts on so many around the world. We know that we are entering (and South Africa is already in) a severe financial recession, but we also know together we can curb the impact on the quality childcare we provide as much as possible by supporting the team that keeps our home going.
Despite the chaos we've managed to pull through the first stages of this pandemic with miraculous providence and have not had the significant cash-flow hiccups we experienced the year before. However, as we come to the end of this year our financial forecasting for the coming three months are concerning. We are not going to be able to cover the added salary expenses of the caregiver assistants we've had to bring on to our team to compensate for the lack of resident volunteers we usually rely on.
Having the grace of at least three months added salary support for the coming months will give us a HUGE opportunity to stabilize our home as we plan for the imminent relocation to our new home. Additionally, the festive season and start of a new year often poses challenges to our team as many of our team members request leave and are looking to enjoy some time with their own families. This means that our fundraising ability is severely strained as we focus all our attention on caregiving.
This project ensures that not only our babies are provided the loving care from 16 of the ladies on our team, but that they in turn are able to provide the much needed support each of their families are relying on to see them through to 2021. So many in our communities are living hand to mouth at the moment, and not being able to afford their services will add many more casualties to this heart-wrenching situation. It will also provide us the much needed stability we need as we go into 2021
