Johannesburg, South Africa – Sasol is stepping up its flood relief support in KwaZulu-Natal with the donation of mobile clinics and an emergency vehicle as part of its infrastructure reconstruction efforts in the province as well as enabling access to much-needed healthcare services.
Sasol’s support of distressed families the last couple of weeks since the company announced it is donating R7,5 million towards relief efforts in the KwaZulu-Natal. Over the last two weeks, it has distributed around 2000 food and hygiene parcels, blankets and mattresses to distraught families in areas such as Mandeni, KwaDukuza, uMlazi, Tongaat, Pinetown, Verulam, Pietermaritzburg and Phoenix.
“We are trying our best to act swiftly and provide consistent relief to those families most affected by the recent devastating floods,” said Charlotte Mokoena, Sasol Executive Vice President: Human Resources and Stakeholder Relations. “Stepping up for the greater good of our country and impacted communities is a responsibility we all share. We hope Sasol’s efforts provide some respite and comfort to distressed families as they start to rebuild their lives.”
Of the R7,5 million Sasol has availed towards disaster relief efforts in KwaZulu-Natal, R5 million has been set aside to provide key infrastructure such as schools and clinics. The R2,5 million is what has gone towards providing immediate on the ground support, working together with the Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA), the provincial government, various municipalities and Imperial Logistics.
