We are on a mission to ensure that community care workers are kept safe throughout the course of this pandemic. There are many ways that you can support CCWs including contributing to the costs of procuring Personal Protective Equipment.

The costs of PPE fluctuate dramatically, but as an indication from our first round of distribution when we were able to send PPE to some 16 200 community care workers:

  • Type II Facemask – R4,06
  • A reusable face mask kit (cloth mask plus nanofiber insert that needs to be changed every 10 days) R26 for mask (two per CCW), R10 for nanofiber insert
  • Gloves – R6,24 a pair
  • Apron – R0,40
  • Gown – R39,80
  • Face shield – R15
  • Disinfectant (5L sanitiser R190)

Dear Community Healthcare Workers
I hear my neighbours cheer every night for essential service workers. Even when you can’t hear us, please know we’re cheering for you.
Thank you for waking up every day and deciding to be brave. You’re my hero.
