Business Leadership SA and JSE have launched an initiative to provide hygiene hampers to disadvantaged communities in Gauteng as the country battles the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hampers are being distributed by JSE’s CSI beneficiary, Afrika Tikkun and consist of tissues, alcohol-based hand sanitisers, antibacterial soap, and an information leaflet illustrating the use of the products, in English, IsiZulu and Setswana.

BLSA’s CEO, Busisiwe Mavuso says, “We all have a role to play in supporting the national efforts to try and tackle this devastating pandemic which has affected all aspects of our lives.

“The impact, however, will only truly be felt when we bring our resources together, be it monetary, intellectual or logistical. When we bring forth our best attributes, we ensure that our contribution to this fight will outlive the current season,” adds Mavuso.
