Dolci Staff Relief Fund

Dolci Staff Relief Fund

Personal message

We are fundraising for all our staff at Dolci who will only get a fraction of their salaries through UIF if we can't help them.

The lockdown has really hurt restaurants as we were targeted before the lockdown even happened. We used what money we had in the business to pay full March salaries, even though we didn't earn anything after 19 March. We simply cannot afford to do the same in April without putting the business in serious risk. And so we turn to you, our loyal customers to ask that if you are in a full salary situation, please consider donating to the staff of Dolci Cafe so that they can continue to have peace of mind and pay their rent and food bills through this difficult time.

We have 44 staff members at Dolci Cafe in Johannesburg who will receive between 3500 and 6700 from UIF, if and when our application is actually approved. In some cases that is less than half of what the staff currently receive, and in the case of the waiters that serve you, it a fraction of what they take home each month. Your donations won't give them a full salary, but it will get them closer to paying off their back rent and putting food on their tables.

All of the funds received will be split evenly between all staff members, up to their full salary amount for April. This money is not to help Dolci Cafe, or pay her rent. It is solely for the benefit of the staff that so lovingly cook and serve your food and drinks when you come to the restaurant.
