In recognition of July being significant in aiding the disadvantaged, Transnet Port Terminals employees in the Eastern Cape donated much needed COVID-19 personal protective equipment to 230 pupils at the Coega Primary School in Motherwell.
The company’s approach has taken the notion of Mandela Day and extended it, with activities planned from July to August throughout the country. The onset of COVID-19 has introduced a need for society to think for each other.
The primary school is located Motherwell’s community of Wells Estate, an area facing a multitude of challenges. Through this gesture, Transnet Port Terminals intends to sow hope and demonstrate care during one of the most challenging times of our time. With the school feeding scheme continuing, pupils will each receive 1 hand sanitisers, 2 cloth masks, 1 liquid soap and a pen for use by individual learners and COVID-19 information resources. It is important that more and more businesses prioritise making schools a safe place for learning.
