Our Support for South Africa during Civil Unrest and COVID-19
In light of the recent civil unrest and COVID-19 third wave in South Africa, the firm is making a contribution of ZAR 4,500,000 in support of food security, with the goal of supporting the most vulnerable and impacted communities. This contribution is intended to support the most vulnerable and impacted communities of South Africa as part of the collective efforts towards the country’s recovery.
At a time when many people are unable to access food and other basic goods, JPMorgan Chase is donating ZAR 2,300,000 to Gift of Givers in support of packing and distributing food parcels to reach the most vulnerable individuals and families in KwaZulu-Natal communities that were hard hit by the food shortage crisis.
In addition, the firm is committing ZAR 2,200,000 to Yebo Fresh, which will help increase access to food supplies for people in Gauteng townships amid the food shortage crisis. At a time when many citizens are unable to access food and other basic goods, Yebo Fresh will provide between 550,000-600,000 meals to those who need it most.
