The #BeKindOnline Campaign

SHAWCO launched the #BeKindOnline Campaign in collaboration with local NGOs and social media influencers to raise funds to help communities in need during the lockdown period. We are so grateful to all those that donated, helped raise money and those who volunteered. Here you can see the positive impact your efforts had on our local communities.

With lockdown approaching, hand sanitisers quickly went out of stock in the Western Cape. SHAWCO’s Head of Pharmacy managed to source 1700 bars of Dettol soap that were then distributed to Simthandile, New Rest, Barcelona, Brown’s Farm, Masiphumelele, Imizamo Yethu, Hangberg, Haven Shelter, Kensington and Manenberg. A lovely example of how the soaps were handed out was by Mr Soldier Kolweni of Nzondi Meals on Wheels (pictured on the right), a local non-profit organisation that feeds many Khayelitsha Site B residents.
