The outbreak of the #COVID19 has posed additional challenges for #mineworkers to claim their owed social security and compensation benefits. The closure of borders has limited the ability for ex-mineworkers to travel to employment countries to complete administrative requirements while the tracing of miners cannot be done because it compromises the health and safety of ex-mineworkers’ families.
This week's #SocietyTalks discusses the responses of support organisations while presenting recommendations that will best support the #mining community to access their benefits during the pandemic. Stream live at 16h00 on Wednesday 12 August via the Southern Africa Trust YouTube channel.
