Waitrose Foundation At Work

COVID-19 Relief Funding applied to protective equipment for partner farms.


We have been busy during the month of November with site visits for delivery of protective equipment including face shields, face masks, hand sanitiser and dispensers, thermometers and place markers. There are many areas we've not managed to cover yet, but our partner farms are also making arrangements to have these items couriered to them. This particular order is on its way to farms in the Northern Cape.

Covid-19 is still a reality we're dealing with globally. Apart from various initiatives launched by our grower partners to offer vaccination facilities for workers and their families, it is still extremely important to make sure that community centres, partial care facilities and creches on farms are adequately equipped. These items installed and available on the farms are also useful tools to teach kids in the partial care facilities and creches about hygiene and safety during this time.
