SanitizeSouthAfrica

Personal message

We are a group of young South African women, and we are raising funds to provide local communities who cannot follow WHO guidelines with hand sanitizer.

The WHO (World Health Organization) recommended measures to fight the Covid19 pandemic are simply not possible for the majority of our population. South Africa needs different solutions.

Most people in our country do not have running water, live with up to 15 people in one room, depend on over-crowed public transport and simply cannot afford hand-sanitizer.

We aim to raise funds to provide sanitization materials to our communities who do not have the luxury of self-isolating and constant hand-washing. We intend to distribute hand sanitizer to community leaders on an ongoing basis, starting as soon as we can. Hygiene is critical and experience from other countries has already demonstrated that health care systems will not cope.

This is our time as a community to rally together and assist where we can. We have an obligation as a diverse and multi-cultural nation to support our local communities during this pandemic. We need effective solutions right now that are appropriate for South Africa.  This is a way for you to actively join in the fight against Covid19 by donating to this initiative. #SanitizeSouthAfrica can be a beacon of unity. Let’s come together and protect our people from Covid19.

The funds will be used directly for purchasing hand sanitizer for distribution to local community leaders.

We aim to start in the Western Cape and expand to the rest of the country.

Please follow our progress here.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the supplier of the hand sanitizer.*

#SanitizeSouthAfrica Cause

#SanitizeSouthAfrica Cause Logo

We have decided to set up a fund raising initiative to source and distribute as much hand sanitizer as possible to our local communities through community leaders in townships. Although it may not solve all of our problems, this is a small act that we can do as a community to support our country and our people.

We need to act now.

Isolate and wash your hands if you can. But also think about those who can't.

Please share. Please support our initiative by clicking on the Donate button above.
