As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, we remain firmly focused on frontline health workers. They’re on the front lines at this very moment—in hospitals, clinics, and triage centers around the world—putting themselves at risk to stop this pandemic. Now, more than ever, healthcare workers need our support. That’s why we have created the Healthcare Workers Care Network Fund to provide healthcare workers the emotional and mental health help, support and coaching so they can continue to provide essential services for families and communities.

Our South African healthcare workers are dedicated people who are committed to see all of us through the COVID-19 crisis. But they are also stressed, exhausted, deeply worried, and at risk. But we need your help so we can support healthcare workers on the frontline.

Your gift will help us continue to ensure healthcare workers have mental health support and help so they can keep fighting. They are putting their lives on the line every day to protect us. Please make your donation today to help us support and care for them.


An independent HWCN Fund has been established to help mitigate the costs to set up and support the initiative throughout COVID19 and hopefully beyond. The HWCN is putting out a call for urgent funding to help sustain the initiative and ensure we can provide ongoing support, crisis intervention and support to all healthcare workers throughout COVID19.

The HWCN Fund will cover the following costs:

  • Set up and running of helpline and SMS lines
  • Case management, call backs and support for healthcare workers
  • Specialized positive contact support programmes for those in quarantine
  • Awareness, marketing and promotion of the network (like branded armbands, psycho-education brochures, posters, etc.).
  • Cover costs for emergency interventions if necessary, for healthcare professionals who have no resources (eg. transport, emergency accommodation, medication and treatment)

This Fund will be used to promote healthcare workers’ mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, and will need to be operative for at least the next 12 months.
