Ekurhuleni receives donation for mothers and children

Procter & Gamble donates wet wipes to City of Ekurhuleni for mothers and children.

Ekurhuleni Mayor Tania Campbell received a donation of 24 000 baby wet wipes from Procter & Gamble (P&G) South Africa. A symbolic ceremony to receive the generous donation was held at the Germiston Banquet Hall.

It followed the distribution of the wet wipes at the Germiston Clinic where the mayor, along with P&G representative Mahmoud Sayed, distributed the packets to babies who were brought in for immunisation.

Speaking at the ceremony, Campbell stated the donation by P&G is a testament to the organisation’s understanding of the socioeconomic challenges of parents and guardians.

When it comes to the distribution of wet wipes, priority will be given to less fortunate patients who bring their children to the facility.

Clinic managers from 77 primary healthcare facilities were also present to receive the boxes of wipes that will be distributed to the facilities they manage.

In acknowledging the contribution of the non-government organisations (NGO) making a difference in the lives of Ekurhuleni residents, the mayor handed over two certificates of recognition to P&G representative Mahmoud Sayed and Merencia Scholts from EL-Shammah home.

EL-Shammah home is an NGO operating in Primrose, Germiston, which fosters abandoned children. The organisation also received a donation of 20 boxes of wet wipes in 24 packets.
