Sasol is calling on members of the public to donate blankets to its nationwide blanket drive with a customer reward of free coffee.
The blanket contributions will be distributed to children undergoing facial surgeries as part of the Smile Foundation’s national surgical programme.
“Corrective facial reconstructive surgery offers new hope for these children and their families. But it’s imperative the children receive the right care before and after their operations. In winter, that means staying warm while they make the often very long and difficult journey to the hospital, and keeping opportunistic infections at bay while they’re in recovery and return home after their surgeries. This blanket drive helps us address both those very important issues,” explains Hedley Lewis, Executive Director, Smile Foundation.
Lewis adds that the Smile Foundation would be grateful for any blankets the public could spare, including new blankets. “Due to our multi-disciplinary approach to these paediatric surgeries, we support the children right through their recovery. As part of this, we take into consideration the opportunity for infections, and will be supplying the Smile patients with any new blankets that are donated,” he says.What you can do! Blankets can be dropped off at all Sasol Delight stores in South Africa until 6 July 2016.
