In an economy where many people are wage or salaried workers, a package of temporary, modest or generous, cash relief to poor citizens makes sense.
Dozens of independent UN human rights experts stressed on Thursday, March 26, that everyone, without exception, has the right to life-saving interventions in battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
Well, one South African employer identified as Jackie Davidson has taken the advice with the seriousness it deserves and decided to cushion her employees from the tough economic times in the best way she could.
Taking to Facebook to express her gratitude, Amanda Gxabu said it was typical for Davidson to take care of her employees.
But choosing to extend her support in times of COVID-19 pandemic with food supplies was perceived as extremely thoughtful of her.
"My boss always looks after her employees, she always makes sure they are all looked after. Today she decided to buy each and every one food parcels.
Her name is Jackie Davidson... we are so grateful," wrote Amanda.
Netizens were quick to applaud Davidson for her generosity with some noting that other companies should emulate her.
"She has done more than most big corporate companies have done for their employees. Well done Jackie and bless you. Thank you," wrote Imi Maqoqa.
"May God continue to bless your boss and enlarge her territory! Extremely proud of her loving kindness, care and devotion," said Desmona Mo Adams .
