On the 16th of April 2019, eMedia Holdings company released a statement to announce the launch of the COVID-19 Relief fund. 

"eMedia Investments in association with the Hosken Consolidated Investments (HCI) Foundation, is launching a COVID-19 Relief Fund aimed at assisting the most vulnerable in our society – fellow South Africans at risk of going to sleep without a meal." stated eMedia in a statement. 

The eMedia COVID-19 Relief Fund is in partnership with the HCI foundation to help poverty-stricken communities in South Africa. eMedia is dedicated to assisting 'by providing them with much-needed food relief during the current global COVID-19 pandemic and national lockdown.'

To kickstart the eMedia COVID-19 Relief Fund, the HCI foundation made an initial R500 000 donation. 

'We strongly urge fellow South Africans who can contribute something, no matter how small, to join us in offering a lifeline to people whose lives are currently at risk due to hunger.'

Khalik Sherrif, the eMedia investment CEO said: 

President Cyril Ramaphosa has called for all South Africans to play their part. Having noticed the impact COVID-19 is having on us nationally, and our reporters covering the pandemic in all corners of our country; it is only fitting that we use our platform to mobilize our viewers to help vulnerable communities. To that end, we call on our viewers, businesses too, to support this initiative by making a much needed financial donation of any amount,”

“In addition to their financial contribution, the HCI Foundation will mobilise their already established national network of NGO’s to assist with distribution. Together with our viewers, and the HCI Foundation; we hope to do our part in getting us through this difficult time. We will not stand by while children, child-headed households and the elderly struggle to get the nutrition they need to stay healthy during this disaster. Neither will fellow South Africans,”  added Sherrif
