Challenges Being Faced During COVID-19
Due to the lockdown as a construction and steel business we were forced to close and our projects were put on hold. So for the month of April, we had not income and as a small business had little cash to meet our monthly obligations. We had no money to pay our rented assets being rent for the workshop and vehicle. We were also forced to apply for a no work no pay rule as a result, none of our staff got paid for the month of April. We applied for the UIF and so far there has not been any response.
Now that the lockdown has been lowered to level 4, some of our clients will be opening so that we can finish our projects. However, the money we had has been used up and we have no
money for buying of material, petrol and new HSE pack relating to the Covid19.
What Will The Donations Be Used For?
- Will be used to buy the HSE pack relating to covid19.
- Paying of rental.
- And buying material needed for projects.
How does our work impact the community/give-back?
The company has employed 6 youths in the community who were previously unemployed. We are also upskilling them by giving them short course relating to their work. The money will help us preserve these jobs.
- Growing the business from a turnover of R400 000 to R 1 500 000 in a space of a year and,
- Clinching a 3 year and 1-year service contract with 3 reputable organizations.
