The month of July marks an important day in the global calendar where companies and individuals do selfless acts of giving to celebrate former President Nelson Mandela’s legacy. On 19 and 20 July 2021, Sasol visited vaccination centres at the Standerton Hospital and the Lillian Ngoyi Hall in Govan Mbeki Municipality.

This is in support of the Mpumalanga Department of Health’s vaccination rollout efforts in the communities of Secunda.

Sasol has prepared care-packs, which include warm beverages and hand sanitisers, for community members who will be at the centres to be vaccinated, and snack packs for the hospital staff. These comprise a sandwich, water bottle, energy sweets, and coffee mugs. The purpose of this initiative that honours Madiba’s legacy is two-fold: to boost the morale of healthcare workers, and also to encourage communities to come and get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Sasol is encouraging everyone who is eligible for the vaccine to register as soon as possible, and be part of the solution that curbs the spread of Covid-19. This Mandela Month Sasol would like to thank all healthcare workers for their noble sacrifice and bravery in the face of the pandemic,” said Mashudu Ndou, Vice President and Head of Corporate and Community Affairs.

With the 35 to 49-year olds now qualifying to register for the COVID-19 vaccination, Sasol believes we are now turning the tide against our collective fight against the pandemic.

At Sasol, we commend all community members who have already registered or have received their jab.
