Minister Fritz Launches NHW project to reduce spread of Covid-19

10 July 2020

Tomorrow, the Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, will hand over 15 starter kits to Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) structures, signaling the beginning of the NHW Safety Improvement Volunteers Project with Covid-19 relief measures in Khayelitsha. The programme will later be expanded to support an additional 19 NHWs in the Eastern, Tygerberg, Klipfontein and Southern hotspot areas.

The deployment of the NHWs aims to provide health advocacy through the promotion of social distancing and utilising PPE. At its core, it aims to instill behavioral change by increasing civil compliance with the five golden rules of hygiene at places of congregation including shops, health centers, recreational areas, SASSA payout points and relief points, transport interchanges and schools.
