Rustenburg – Impala Rustenburg believes that the COVID-19 pandemic can be beaten by working together, taking accountability and playing our part in ensuring our collective safety.
Impala embarked on an awareness campaign at schools at the beginning of March to ensure teachers and students are aware of the symptoms and precautionary measures around COVID-19. They are also in the process of preparing masks for all community schoolteachers to receive when they go back to work and developing a programme to assist with the start-up of schools in their host communities. Awareness posters were distributed to 26 schools from 10 Impala mine communities.
Posters were placed at five clinics and various police stations. The three main taxi associations, as well as busses fetching employees in their labour sending areas, received awareness posters.
Posters have also been given to community counsellors to be distributed to shops, clinics, doctors’ offices and community halls.
Impala Rustenburg operations chief executive officer Mark Munroe handed over essential care items on Wednesday 8 April to Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) executive mayor councillor Mpho Khunou to be distributed to the homeless in the RLM area. These items included 150 mattresses, 150 blankets, 500 food supplement sachets, 500 bottles of water and 500 cakes of soap.
Impala Rustenburg general manager Tshediso Mohase and members of the Impala Rustenburg team handed out 50 food parcels on Tuesday 7 April and Wednesday 8 April to families in the Meriteng, Freedom Park, Luka, Phokeng and Lefaragatlhe communities. They will be handing out an additional 1,700 food parcels, 100 parcels to each of their 17 host communities and will continue to assist with distributing food parcels to households identified by counsellors.
