Lockdown has been an experience that I will never forget, with the coronavirus being the reason for the deaths of many people around the world.

People like myself and millions others nationwide were vulnerable even before Covid-19 came and disrupted lives. I have been without a job for more than a decade now. The last time I had full-time employment was in the Western Cape in 2008. I am 40-years-old and have a wife and five children, four of whom get monthly grants from Sassa. Since lockdown, however, our situation has worsened.
