    This blog is a 'pop up' archive that records how people living in South Africa are supporting one another through acts of kindness during lock down. If you would like to have a story featured on the blog, please send a message or voice note to 062 328 1184, or email archiveofkindness@gmail.com. Submissions may be in any of the official South African languages, or in French or Portuguese.

    The site is being curated by Dr Jess Auerbach of North West University (Twitter: @jess_auerbach).

     

    Note: This site is now in transition. Its primary focus was on lockdown in South Africa during the initial two phases of the Corona virus' emergence, but it is currently being expanded by undergraduate students in an Anthropology of Media course at North West University to explore continuing support and care across the country. For any queries, please reach out at the details below.
