It is important to note that the SRD R350 grant is a crucial lifeline for many vulnerable South Africans who have been impacted by the pandemic. This grant is meant to provide temporary financial relief to those who are struggling to make ends meet due to the pandemic, and it is unacceptable that so many approved applicants have not yet received payment.

We urge SASSA and other Civil Societies to prioritize the payment of approved applicants and to provide regular updates on the progress of the payment process. We also call on the government to provide additional resources and support to expedite the payment process, as this is a matter of urgency for many families.

The delayed payment of over 1 million approved SRD R350 grant applicants is a cause for concern. We implore SASSA and other Civil Societies to take action to ensure that these vulnerable individuals receive the support they need. The government must also do everything in its power to expedite the payment process and provide regular updates to the public on its progress. The livelihoods of many South Africans depend on this grant, and it is our duty to ensure that they receive the support they need during these challenging times.
