Clicks store staff and management visited Siyabonga Caring Village situated just outside of Vredenburg and assisted them by donating Clicks adult diapers, baby diapers, toiletries, dental products, shampoo, handwash and soap.
This forms part of Clicks 50th birthday and is one of 50 charitable causes identified by Clicks staff nationwide as their way of giving back to the community they serve.
A total of 34 projects have been earmarked to receive support through donations of much-needed toiletries, infrastructure and basic essentials. A further R1 million worth of reusable sanitary pads will be donated to 16 schools across South Africa to reduce absenteeism in schools.
“Seeing the huge need at Siyabonga Caring Village is very humbling, but also rewarding,” says Donna Davids, CSI Co-ordinator at Clicks. “We are happy to assist where we can and have enjoyed engaging with and helping the residents here.”
Siyabonga Caring Village assists children from vulnerable homes as well as children with disabilities. They also care for young people and adults with mental and physical disabilities.
