The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) recognizes and acknowledges the socio-economic inequalities and challenges that face our communities, and the disparities that persist due to poverty and subsequent social ills.
It is in this view that the FEDUSA in conjunction with its Affiliate, the Health and Other Service Personnel Trade Union of South Africa (HOSPERSA) are working together in remembrance and continuation of celebrating the life of the late Former President, Nelson Mandela. HOSPERSA and FEDUSA will be at the Kalafong Hospital in Atteridgeville, Pretoria on 18 July 2014 to distribute soup packs to those families that are in dire need and without anything warm to eat or drink this winter.
Though this will not make a world of difference considering the population of our country in terms of poverty and unemployment, we are hoping that this gesture is warmly received.
