Johannesburg – Even though the travel bans necessitated by the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus have rained on many a parade, they have not dampened the spirits of two hikers who should have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro last month, on Mandela Day.

Media personalities Gerry Elsdon and Pearl Shongwe have made a vow to do even better next year, the next date of the Trek4Mandela hike done in aid of charity.

Covid-19 is a big threat to hunger and mental health

By Viwe Ndongeni-Ntlebi Time of article published Apr 24, 2020

Hunger is a big threat in South Africa as lockdown continues. Increasing demand for food parcels, looting of shops and cries from the hungry is all we see right now.
According to Trading Economics, unemployment in South Africa is already high, at nearly 30 percent in the fourth quarter of 2019. 
 
The sad reality is, facing hunger can be stressful. Constantly worrying about where your next meal will come from can cause mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and even posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
