Caregivers of children whose parents are deceased or whose whereabouts are unknown should apply for the extended child support grant, says Sassa.


The grant's goal is to support the extended family in caring for orphaned children and preserving the family's traditional structure.

Parents must have passed away or have died and an affidavit declaring that they have no knowledge of the whereabouts of the other parent and that he or she has no role in caring for the child in order for the caregiver to be eligible for the extended child support award, as Sassa clarified.
