UKZN Foundation Notice: Support COVID-19 Scientists on the Frontline

April 23, 2020

This crowdfunding campaign is driven by the University of KwaZulu-Natal Foundation which is the fundraising arm of the University. As an NPO and PBO, the Foundation can provide donors with Section 18A tax exemption certificates for the full value of your donation. To make this crowdfunding work, please share this appeal with others.

The Minister of Health Dr Zweli Mkhize hosted a panel discussion on national television to discuss the past, present and future of COVID-19 in South Africa.       
 
The data used in the presentation were computed by KRISP (KwaZulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform) and the Big Data Flagship Program of UKZN.  The University has put together a team of world-renowned scientists, mathematicians and infectious diseases specialists to analyse South African data in real-time.
 
In order to continue providing free, open and independent analytical services to the country's decision makers guiding us through this pandemic, the initiative requires funding.  We are being supported by many corporate donors and philanthropic organisations.  However, we need to raise significant sums of money hence we appeal to you in your personal capacity to help us continue the work of KRISP and the Big Data Flagship Program of UKZN.
