The Shoprite Group, which is headquartered in Brackenfell, recently showed itself to be a good neighbour to the newly completed Brackengate Intermediate Care facility by donating 330 care packs, containing blankets and toiletries, for distribution amongst the hospital’s Covid-19 patients.
This donation comes on the back of a similar one of 250 care packs to the Western Cape Government Health, which were distributed among patients making use of the isolation facilities in the province.
Each pack contains a blanket, soap, waterless hand sanitiser, a face cloth, toothbrush and toothpaste to help make the often-difficult isolation process slightly easier.
Western Cape MEC for Health Dr Nomafrench Mbombo thanked the Shoprite Group for their donations.
