Many South Africans living below poverty threshold

Many South Africans are living below the poverty threshold and many are struggling to make ends meet.

The huge unemployment rate is of great concern with no signs of abating, resulting in an aftermath of a host of social problems impacting on the daily lives of many and, of course, a surge in crime.

NGOs nationwide are rising to the occasion and providing at least some reprieve for individuals, families and communities facing economic and social upheaval.

The work of such organisations is effected by altruistic contributions from citizens, business and industrial enterprises and philanthropists.

Such contributions from the public - purely for humanitarian purposes - needs to be acknowledged and commended.

Many others, who are able, should emulate this as the work of NGOs depends entirely on funding from donors and sponsors.
Others who may not be able to contribute can volunteer and get involved in community work.

Indeed there is both nobility and reward in such efforts.
