Dear Member,

Just as all storms weathered, the aftermath lingers on long after it has left. Whilst we are not out of the woods yet, the COVID-19 Pandemic has certainly left its mark. LegalWise Champions, together with all South Africans, have showed resilience and resolve in keeping the wheels of the South African economy turning. As we adjust to the new normal of continuous sanitising, social distancing and being back in our working environments, we look forward to all the possibilities and opportunities for the year.

Effective from 1 July 2021 our insurance benefits and premiums will increase. Read full details about your new  benefits in this edition of the newsletter.

As we commemorate Youth Day, on June 16, we remember and pay tribute to the lives lost and recognise the role the Youth of 1976 played in the liberation of South Africa from the apartheid regime. Read more about what happened to the 20 000 students who protested on that fateful day. In focusing on the youth of today, learn more about what it means for young people to be entering the workforce and the inevitable world of credit and what to be mindful of. Youth in South Africa are categorised as young people between the ages of 15 to 34, read more about the protection of children's mental health and get details of some organisations that can specifically assist children with mental disorders.
