The Helen Suzman Foundation (“HSF”) welcomes the amendments which make the Social Relief of Distress Grant (“SRDG”) more widely available to those in desperate need. Nevertheless, the HSF has submitted that the amendments be treated only as a step toward progressively realising permanent basic income support, on a fiscally sustainable basis, for South Africans who find themselves trapped outside of the labour market without an income of their own.
