Healthcare workers given ‘a little bit of home’ during their long shifts

DEFY has donated appliances valued at R1.9m to three Gauteng hospitals

Healthcare workers can now enjoy some home comforts during the long shifts required to care for Covid-19 patients thanks to a donation of kitchen and household appliances.

DEFY recently donated kitchen appliances to three hospitals in Gauteng – Jubilee Hospital, Tshwane District Hospital and Mamelodi Hospital – to show support to the nation’s #healthcareheroes during the pandemic.

The donation of these appliances, which are valued at R1.9m, is part of DEFY’s nationwide initiative to donate essential appliances to hospitals at the forefront of the pandemic around the country.

“The world is facing unprecedented turmoil at this time and our #healthcareheroes are doing an incredible job as the first line of defence against the virus,” says Evren Albas, CEO of DEFY Appliances.

“As an organisation committed to the wellbeing of our communities, we wanted to do what we could to lighten the burden of these tireless individuals through this donation. We would also like to extend our thanks to Bakers Logistics for making the deliveries possible.”

DEFY’s contribution to the fight against Covid-19 also includes the manufacture and distribution of ventilators.

By working with stakeholder organisations, the provision of this life-saving equipment falls under the National Ventilator Project.
