FIELD BAND FOUNDATION STATEMENT ON THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC
17 March 2020
The Field Band Foundation responds to the President’s call for cooperation and solidarity as South Africa faces the challenges of the Corona Virus. We are committed to taking responsible and positive actions to endorse the call for good prevention behavior.
All band rehearsals and planned educational activities will be on pause from 16 – 30 March. FBF head office staff will work closely with the bands’ community project team leaders to ensure that our stakeholders are informed and our band members safe. We are proud that we have already been teaching band members about hygiene and integrated health matters as part of our band activities for many years. We believe that this has put some good habits in place already.
We know that field bands are a conduit for hope and support in communities and are a trusted space. We will do all we can to promote solidarity and social cohesion during this unsettling time.
Nicolette du Plessis (Ms)
Chief Executive Officer
