The Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA), and Accor’s ALL Heartist Fund, have assisted more than 500 of the Mantis Collection’s team members and their families with food hampers during the COVID-19 lockdown. The pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on people working in the hospitality and eco tourism industry, as well as the communities they support.
International hospitality group, Accor, took proactive measures to protect and support team members and partners during this global pandemic, including the creation of the ALL Heartist Fund, a R1.3 billion COVID-19 special purpose fund. An application to the ‘ALL Heartiest Fund’ was made to provide emergency food relief during lockdown and to support around 500 team members. This includes families working on Mantis properties in the Eastern Cape.
