In a clear demonstration of compassion for others, Zonderwater Recreation Club, Gauteng Region, has donated 1 147 facemasks to officials and offenders working at the club’ service points.
The recreation club comprises officials who make monthly contributions with the aim of promoting teamwork, and also provides certain financial assistance to officials participating in different types of events, in the management area.
Area Commissioner, Nico Baloyi commended the initiative and empathy shown by the club to ensure that the health and wellness of officials is not compromised in fighting the coronavirus. He also thanked the suppliers for their swift response in delivering the facemasks at short notice despite the high demand in the market.
Special Programmes and Club Manager, Jacob Lekgau alluded to the responsibility of the club for the wellness of officials. “The Club felt the need to take care of its constituency,” said Lekgau. This good gesture will ensure that the management area has more than enough personal protective equipment (PPEs) over a period of time. The well-designed and thick layered washable masks can last for up to six months according to the suppliers.
The masks will be distributed within the management area and Zonderwater College. Officials were delighted to receive the facemasks, and applauded the care shown by the club.
