Caroline takes SASSA services, 15 November.

This innovative Community Outreach initiative aims to provide seamless access to social assistance services for the residents of Caroline.

Caroline takes SASSA Services, 15 November

Situated within the Chief Albert Luthuli Municipality under the Gert Sibande District, Caroline hosts a significant population dependent on social grants. The local SASSA office, tasked with catering to this community’s needs, faces challenges due to a considerable surge in foot traffic. The round trip from the SASSA office to Caroline spans approximately 158 kilometers.

The Community Outreach event promises an array of services, including the application process for all social grants. Special attention will be given to addressing COVID-19-related inquiries, particularly those related to the R350 grant. Additionally, SASSA will offer support and guidance on various payment methods available to beneficiaries.

Recognizing the multidimensional needs of the community, SASSA has collaborated with key stakeholders such as the Department of Health, Social Development, Home Affairs, Chief Albert Luthuli Municipality, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), and banking institutions. This collaborative effort aims to provide a comprehensive range of services that go beyond the scope of traditional social grant administration.

The outreach event is scheduled to take place on the 15th of November 2023 at the Silobela Community Hall, commencing at 08:30. The media is invited to cover this significant initiative, shedding light on the innovative approach adopted by SASSA to extend its reach and better serve the needs of the Caroline community.
