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)

Too often those of you who provide healthcare and support to people in their own homes don’t get the recognition you deserve. We want to thank you and to tell you that we value you so much. Please also tell your families how much we appreciate you.
