TuksRes Solidarity Fund

Personal message

In an effort to alleviate some of the hardships faced by our financially affected members of residences, the Sub-Council: Residences for 2020 has put together a TuksRes Solidarity Fund - for the students, by the students.

This fund aims to support individual residence students and assist them to buy essential items. We have identified data for online learning, groceries and toiletries as the most prominent areas where we can provide aid.

The Sub-Council: Residences has managed to raise around R150 000 in pledges. However, in the first 24 hours of the link being active, over 1300 applications were made. To date there are about 1500 applications. Thus, we are asking for your help.

Owing to the large number of responses which we have received, we are providing a capped amount of aid to each student and in the application process request each student to stipulate what they require funds for. We also request proof of banking details in an attempt to make the process as transparent as possible. 

Reaching our target on this funding site will mean that approximately 140 students will receive aid in order to buy essential items. 

Thus far, because of the efforts of student leaders, we have been able to help 265 students to a pay out value of around R120 000. This is an exciting start to our project and we cannot wait to keep providing assistance.

Our goal is to help 500 students with essential items so that they can focus on their academic success rather than where their next meal might come from.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that all students who apply will receive aid but we believe any difference we can make is a step towards supporting our family. We cannot help everyone but helping anyone is better than helping no one.

We hope that you will support us. Little by little, a little becomes a lot.

We hope you are safe, well and at home.

Warm regards,

Sub-Council: Residences
