OverviewThe President's Fund offers reparation measures to victims on the recommendation of the State President, and the subsequent consideration and recommendation of the ad hoc Joint Committee on Reparations of both Houses of Parliament on the tabling of the final two volumes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Reports.
It does this as follows: a once-off individual grant of R30 000 to those individuals or survivors identified by the TRC; systematic programmes to project the symbolism of the struggle and the ideal of freedom through academic and formal records of history, cultural and art forms, as well as erecting symbols and monuments that exalt the freedom struggle, including new geographic and place names; medical and other forms of social assistance programmes to provide for medical benefits, education assistance and the provision of housing, as well as other social benefits to address the needs of victims identified by the TRC; and the rehabilitation of whole communities, other than individuals linked to the process, which suffered intense acts of violence and destruction and are still in distress.
