SASOL BENEFICIARIES: Day care centre representatives collecting the donations at the Lutheran Church Hall in Embalenhle.
The Secunda-based petrochemical company, Sasol, in conjunction with the provincial social development department brought smiles to orphaned children, disabled people and the elderly represented by 68 organisations within the Gert Sibande district municipality, when they presented them with linen and crockery at the Lutheran Church Hall in Embalenhle near Secunda on Tuesday.
The 5240 beneficiaries include orphans, disabled vulnerable and older people as well as day care centres.
Sasol community affairs manager, Isaac Modise, said they were confident the donation would make a big difference in the lives of the recipients who also deserved to be cared for. “Linen and crockery are one of the most basic essentials needed for running these centres.
“Sasol is committed to making a difference in the lives of all the beneficiaries and to providing them with comfort,” Modise said.
He said Sasol had long term relationships with the centres and that it continued to support key community development issues.
“Children and the aged are important members of our society. Taking care of children contributes towards sustaining the nation,” Modise said.
