The family of late struggle icon Joe Slovo has announced the establishment of the Joe Slovo Foundation, an initiative aimed at helping the government to deal with the housing backlog and improve access to education.
According to Martin Dolny, Slovo’s brother-in-law and the foundation’s fundraiser, the foundation will give priority for supporting the expansion of housing cooperatives to expedite the housing delivery, as well as legal and professional services.
Dolny states that a number of people had already expressed support for the initiative, although it would be launched only in May.
"The foundation has already received tremendous support and commitment from comrades and colleagues of the late minister and African National Congress hero, as well as political parties, labour and business," he explains.
