CCJ Helps Government to Alleviate Poverty

Food vouchersIn April social workers contacted Mpophomeni coordinator Lucky Mkhize to ask her advice on which community members deserve food vouchers from the Department of Social Development. Lucky accompanied the social workers to visit five families. Three were then recommended as deserving candidates (the other two, while without any employment, already received a limited amount of welfare support). In June, one family of nine received R1000 from the government, another family of five received R2100, and a third family will receive a voucher soon.  Two of the beneficiaries (right) visited Lucky on June 15th to receive their vouchers.

CCJ paralegals often work with partners such as social workers, and their knowledge of their community is useful when identifying and helping the most needy.
