NGOs are feeling the pinch as the country teeters on the brink of a recession. This is according to the Southern African NGO Network (SANGONeT),
SANGONeT executive director, David Barnard, points out that some NGOs will have to close many of their branches especially in poor communities, if they do not receive substantial funding in the next few months.
"Funders are not able to assist the organisations anymore because they themselves aren't coping. It is going to have a major impact on welfare organisations - either they will close down or their staff will be forced to leave the NGO sector," says Barnard.
