Gloria Serobe (Solidarity Fund) is one of SA's most important people right now
The Solidarity Fund was created on 23 March 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa.
It’s a platform for anyone from the public, civil society as well as the public and private sector to contribute to a consolidated fund for a variety of initiatives.
The Fund functions independently of the government and the businesses or individuals who donate to it.
Serobe heads the Solidarity Fund.

She has an MBA from Rutgers University (New Jersey, USA) and serves on the boards of WIPHOLD, Sasfin, Hans Merensky, Adcorp and Denel.
