Waitrose Foundation At Work

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

December 2021

We received photos from Elmarie at Sonop farm, one of our grower partners in Patensie in the Eastern Cape. They have received their delivery of protective equipment including face shields, face masks, hand sanitiser and dispensers, thermometers and place markers.

These items continue to be extremely important for the safety of agriworkers on farms. The consistent following of covid safety protocols remain essential for significantly reducing the risk of infection. The items purchased using the Covid-19 relief fund, have been distributed to farms all across South Africa.
