The Sukuma Fund was established within days of lockdown with an initial R1bn donation from the Rupert Family and Remgro Limited. Since then, thanks to further charitable donations, the fund has grown significantly. The goal is to rescue and revive thousands of small businesses across the country – preserving jobs and supporting the people who depend on them. This is a long-term project, and the Fund intends to become a permanent relief fund for small businesses, able to assist South African small businesses in future crises. However, due to high demand, all applications are currently suspended.
