The Covid-19 pandemic has hit South Africa hard with many livelihoods compromised with imposed lockdowns. Almost a year and a half after the first case was detected, the country is in the throes of a third wave which looks to be much worse than the first two. The country has also gone into a further lockdown.

As a business person, Percy Koji of FML- Friends of Morokweng, a registered NPO, says that despite Covid he has been able to give back. He has partnered with the Czech Embassy in Pretoria to make a donation to Bophelo Impilo Community School.

Koji believes that education can help to alleviate poverty and that this donation will make sure that the pupils will have shoes, uniforms, lunch allowances, etc to ensure that they are able to attend school.

FML made a donation of R50 000 and the Embassy of the Czech Republic donated R15 000 to support the community work.
