Random Acts of Kindness with Dis-Chem

702 and Dis-Chem Foundation donate wheelchairs to CHB Academic Hospital

702 and Dis-Chem Foundation donate wheelchairs to Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital

A desperate call for wheelchairs at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital has been answered by 702 and the Dis-Chem Foundation as a Random Acts of Kindness. This campaign allows for the distribution of donations to worthy causes.

During the Afternoon Drive, Xolani Gwala read out a desperate plea by Dr. Nicola, a medical doctor at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in which she explained the dire need for wheelchairs at the hospital.

Upon hearing this request, Xolani called on Dis-Chem Foundation founder, Lynette Saltzman, who was eager to donate 40 wheelchairs to the value of R50 000. Lynette said this donation is intended to alleviate to some extent the struggle at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital.

In Dr. Nicola’s email, she explained: “As you already know resources are very scarce within our setting. We currently have 100 patients on a list waiting for wheelchairs. We were wondering if you would be able to aid us if possible with some branded wheelchairs or if we would be able to acquire wheelchairs for a reduced price for outpatients requiring chairs,” she explained.

After the announcement was made on air, Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital Board Chairperson, Gideon Sithole was elated at the news. He told Xolani that this is exciting news and that he is thankful to 702 and the Dis-Chem Foundation for identifying the hospital as the recipient of the donation.

Xolani thanked Lynette for heeding to the call for wheelchairs. “All of 702-land would like to thank you very much for this act of kindness.”
