Hunger is a human rights issue

In the special report published by Business Day to commemorate Human Rights Day 2021, Siyabonga Africa’s work in helping to alleviate hunger was featured.

Ryland Fisher, editor of the publication, wrote that, “We are living in unprecedented challenging times. The past year has seen lives disrupted in severe ways. The coronavirus pandemic has impacted on our citizens’ health, finances, mental wellbeing and has further burdened an already overly burdened public purse. What this has also consequently meant is that issues pertaining to gender equality and general human rights have been heightened.

“In this issue of Human Rights Day, which is celebrated on 21 March every year, we take a look at issues pertaining to the right to dignity,
housing, education, and food security.”
