SHOUT SA have created a new public service initiative with SMD Technologies called SHOUT4MASKS (Shout4masks.co.za) to help raise money to buy masks directly from factories in order to urgently get them to health carers and patients. Hot Cares decided it is imperative that we get involved and assist where we can.
SHOUT SA co-founder Danny K explains: “There is a crying need to protect those who are protecting us – our frontline heroes. Battling valiantly against Covid-19 our healthcare sector needs our support right now as the supply of masks dwindles. It’s getting desperate. Here at Shout SA we have a voice, why not use it to shout out to our fellow countrymen to help secure more masks?”
Co-founder Kabelo adds: “We are calling on all our fellow musicians and celebrities to get behind this to inspire and unite the nation to help get proper safe masks for those that need them most. For both patients and our most vulnerable communities, I am relieved that we are able to spread a protective front for both. “
Shout4Masks provides a platform for all South Africans, individuals and corporates, to donate combo packs of both specialist and surgical masks to health carers and patients urgently in need for as little as R100.
Hot Cares has eagerly got involved in this initiative and have donated R10 000 towards SHOUT4MASKS.
