Sasol has donated World Health Organization-approved vaccine carriers, cold storage freezers and temperature loggers to the Free State provincial government to support the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.
The medical equipment includes a Ford Ranger custom built mobile clinic, a Toyota Hi-Ace 14-seater minibus, 5 WHO (-40oC) approved vaccine cold storage freezers, 25 vaccine carriers, 25 temperature loggers and 20 laptops handed over to the Free State Department of Health. Information pamphlets and posters were included in the donation.
“In order to deliver on our community health focus area, and solidify our social partner status, we recognize the need to support the provincial government’s vaccination rollout strategy by donating essential equipment and resources,” said Charlotte Mokoena, Sasol Executive Vice President: Human Resources and Stakeholder Relations.
Recognizing the challenge posed by the vastness of the Free State landscape in enabling access to vaccines especially in the most rural parts of the province, the company also donated mobile clinics, vehicles and laptops to be used for the capturing of data.
