Dis-chem Gives Back

The team from Walvis Bay Dis-Chem Dunes Mall in conjunction with the Dis-Chem Foundations Million Comforts drive set out to donate free pads to girls from various disadvantaged schools in Walvis Bay Monday, 17 September 2018.
The school’s were Tutaleni Primary School, Kuisebmund Secondary and Duinesig Combined School. The initiative, which forms a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility, designed to ensure we keep our treasured young ladies in school all year round as research shows that young ladies from disadvantaged areas miss up to a 5th of their education due to the lack of a basic need like sanitary pads. The initiative saw several plastic bags’ worth of pads given to the schools as a show of support. Dis-Chem’s Customer Consultants, Melissa van der Berg and Paschalia George, also expressed their delight at the initiative, saying that Dis-Chem is always passionate about giving back. The Dis-Chem Foundation launched a campaign where customers could donate pads, our suppliers brand matched each donation like for like and these were then distributed to schools. Other than this, they also have a campaign for the elderly.
