On 18 March 2021, Grow Great and its partners from CoCare, Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading, Embrace and Amandla.mobi held an interactive virtual conference on the findings of the CoCare Report.

The report found that pregnant women living in disadvantaged communities in the Western Cape experienced high levels of hunger, poor mental health, and economic insecurity in the months following South Africa’s national COVID-19 lockdown.

The CoCare report furthermore shows the urgent need for the prioritization of a maternal support grant.
