The Daveyton Association For The Physically Disabled Helps Fight Covid

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck last year and Government called for businesses to step up and help, leading hospitality and gaming establishment, Emperors Palace leapt into action and donated R20-million towards much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for 169 schools in Ekurhuleni. The Palace of Dreams kicked its efforts off in September 2020 and has since delivered supplies like masks, shields, gloves, aprons, soap and cleaning materials to these schools. In addition, to further empower the communities in the casino’s catchment area, it (Emperors Palace) contracted local businesses, co-operatives and NPO's to make the masks. Among the beneficiaries was the Daveyton Association For The Physically Disabled which has to date made 37 313 masks while creating jobs for about 30 of the centre's physically disabled members. Helping these members reach this target was Workshop Supervisor, Thabang Sibeko who is pictured here showing Emperors Palace Trust Administrator, Thomas Masango how to make a mask during a site visit to the Daveyton NPO on Tuesday, April 13.
