Dear Mr President,

The other day I was in Checkers, and I saw a father begging a manager in Checkers to please allow him to buy a toy for his 3 year old son who will be having his birthday and has been in a shack for the last 6 weeks of Lockdown. The manager really understood but had to refuse. I could see the tears in this father’s eyes and it broke my heart.

Our kids have been home since day one of Lockdown in South Africa.

They can not see their friends, go to school, see their family or grandparents. Many kids had birthdays during lockdown and it was bad enough not to even have a party for them.  What makes this worse is that since this week, the few stores who were still selling toys, stopped selling toys.

Mr President, how would you feel if you can not buy a toy for your children or maybe grandchildren during their birthday.

Our children are already confused as their routines have been shaken up by this whole lockdown. Some children reacted so severely to these changes that they had to go for therapy. 

Please please make toys available for our children. It helps with stimulation, their education (seem to the fact that they can already not go to school) and at least makes these horrible circumstances a little more bearable. 

Signed by frustrated parents all over South Africa.
