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