The Gauteng Health Department has reassured NGOs that render services to the department that they will get money owed to them this week.
Department spokesperson, Simon Zwane, points out that although some NGOs were paid earlier this month, others did not get the money due to them because of technical problems experienced with the payment run.
He assured the NGOs that an amount of R63 million will be released. He describes NGOs as the department’s important partners in service delivery, adding that, “We are committed to ensuring that they do not experience obstacles in their endeavours to assist in the care for the vulnerable members of our society."
