The Verulam Child Welfare Society on the North Coast is in dire straits since the pandemic put most of their fundraising drives on hold.
Manager of the society, Mala Pather, said: “We are dependent on funding, individual donations and fundraising initiatives to support our operations. The restrictions placed on gatherings have resulted in organisations like ours being unable to host fundraising activities.
“We rely on our charity fair, annual dinner dance, gold cup and golf day to fund our programmes and other operational costs. We have not been able to host a single fundraising event.
