MySchool | Funding Gift of the Givers fight against COVID-19

To support frontline medical workers by providing protective wear and equipment, Woolworths and MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet have donated R500 000 to the Gift of the Givers Foundation.

As one of the country’s primary disaster response charities, Gift of the Givers is a recognised partner in the South African government’s Covid-19 response.  The foundation has already set up numerous mobile Covid-19 testing sites to support South Africa’s hospitals, and is raising urgent funds for medical equipment and protective gear.

As well as setting up tent testing sites and ordering much-needed ventilators, Gift of the Givers is raising funds to buy and supply protective masks, Hazmat suits, gowns, gloves and goggles – equipment that’s vital to protect nurses and doctors at the frontline of the pandemic.

Help support Gift of the Givers Foundation by selecting them as a beneficiary and then using your MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card online or when you’re doing your essentials shopping at our partners. Remember, you can update your beneficiaries anytime on our App.
