Personal message

@MuzosDirect is a newly-created volunteer network of musicians, media personalities, business people, cultural activists, and music lovers from across the globe, who are joining hands to help those in need in South Africa's music industry during these challenging times.

Our aim together with you is to raise funds to provide Food baskets, Health and Medical care to full time musicians that live in no income homes.

Your donation will feed musicians and their families at a time when there is no food in their homes, no income or very little, if any, government assistance.

All gigs have been canceled and will continue to be so with no end in sight.

Many older musicians are also not able to showcase their music online or join governmental databases due to a lack of digital access or know-how.

Widows and dependants of recently deceased musicians are also facing food challenges. This global crisis does not exclude the younger artists and industry support services either.

We will extend this relief to them as well as soon as funds are raised. 

Your donation will be utilised for food, hygiene products, facemasks and in some cases medical supplies, via established food and service delivery programs. 

www.yebofresh.co.za and Shoprite Virtual Food Vouchers will be used for supply of Food Baskets and Groceries.

Individual medical needs will be provided by certified medical staff and all facemasks and sanitisers provided by Medac, in Southfield, Cape Town.

Funds will be received and distributed by Carlo Fabe and a team of volunteers. This process is audited by Craig Homan, a chartered accountant.
