SUPPORTING SOUTH AFRICA THROUGH THE COVID-19 CRISIS

CREATING SUSTAINABLE NON-PHARMACEUTICAL INTERVENTIONS

#heroeswearmasks is a movement to encourage every person in South Africa to help save the lives and livelihoods of not only our loved ones, but our entire country.  The ripples of our responsibility and kindness will have a lasting impact on our communities and economy.  Each and every one of  us, whether you are the leader of a corporate, a taxi driver, or a passenger, can make a huge impact on how South Africa survives this pandemic.

By engaging in simple interventions, we show our commitment to protecting everyone around us, from healthcare workers to the most vulnerable communities. We can sustain the economic pulse of South Africa.

Universal healthcare, access to information and economic stability are central tenets to the success of our country.

#HeroesOpenWindows: Ensure you keep fresh air circulating through your homes, offices or public transport to reduce the viral  load from the air we all breath #creatingsaferpassages

 

#HeroesShareWithCare: When sharing food, be  mindful that when masks are down and you’re sitting  close to one another, the risk of accidentally spreading covid increases

#CreateSaferPassages

75% of people in South Africa use commuter  taxis. This equates to 15 MILLION commuters daily on 250,000 vehicles. 

LET’S  USE THE PANDEMIC TO MAKE THEM SAFE!

Working with an incredible team of researchers, public health specialists, scientists, community  members, corporates, creatives & the commuter taxi industry, we are developing a set of infectious  disease prevention interventions  that will have

WORLD CLASS IMPACT through:

  1. Interrupt onward transmission of multiple infectious diseases (COVID-19, TB, influenza, etc.)
  2. Provide relevant public health information by making internet accessible for 15 million daily commuters
  3. Reduce the burden of disease on the health system, saving lives and money,
  4. Promotes micro-enterprise development (Supplier & Enterprise Development points)
  5. Sustains itself through B-BBEE investment and passive revenue generation (that will be ploughed straight back into marginalised communities)
  6. Potentially export to other African countries in reducing the burden of disease across Africa

DISRUPTING, INNOVATING & GROWING AFRICA!

WE ARE 100% COMMITTED TO FULL FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY

All funds donated are carefully and transparently managed by the Wits Health Consortium.

Our financials for this campaign will be published online for all to see and hold us accountable www.africanpotential.com

Through the Wits Foundation, we are able to provide a Section 18A certificate for donations.
