Dear Friends,

Welcome to the South African Embassy website. 

The number of deaths from coronavirus recently passed the 2,000 mark in South Africa. Among those who have lost their lives are health care workers, consummate professionals who cared for the ill, and were a support and comfort to those in hospital isolated from their families. We salute these brave South Africans who leave their homes, families and loved ones to report without fail for duty every day in clinics, hospitals and other health facilities. There they provide medical care, administrative support and other services like cleaning and catering. We know what causes the virus and what we can do to protect ourselves from becoming infected. We know we have to maintain social distancing, to self-isolate if we have come into contact with those infected and to present to a hospital if we have symptoms. We must continue to be guided by facts. We shall overcome this virus and rebuild our society.

We urge for everyone in Turkey and South Africa to consider adhering to the rules and regulations that are aimed at reducing the spread of the virus. It’s summer season in Turkey and we wish everyone to enjoy holidays, with caution and safety. While webinars or online meetings are becoming a new reality, the COVID 19 situation allows us to explore our capabilities within the frame of innovation and initiatives. Unfortunately COVID 19 continues to disrupt the usual way of doing things. Fortunately the Embassy is proud to have taken precautionary measures to ensure service delivery facilitation / coordination of bilateral relations. It is only through constructive initiatives and innovation that we can improve the lives of people and contribute towards creating a better and safer world.

Please find below the highlights for this month;. Read More..
