- Gift of the Givers is offering great support to South Africans amidst the Covid-19 crisis
- The Humanitarian organisation is setting up testing stations across the country
- Tests done at these special centres will be done at the discounted rate of R750
Amidst the Covid-19 crisis and imminent nationwide lockdown, it is now more important than ever for South Africans to work together.
Humanitarian organisation Gift of the Givers is leading by example by providing tremendous support for South Africans during this testing period.
The charity organisation has launched testing sites across the country to curb the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
South Africans will be pleased to know that tests done at these facilities will be discounted, with a rate of R750.
IOL reported that this fee includes the consult, specimen collection, courier charges, lab testing and the admin fee.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the normal rate at private facilities can amount to R 1500.
Two of the centres opened in Gauteng last week, while another is set to launch in Durban at Ahmed Al Kadi Hospital within the next few days.
GOTG founder Imtiaz Sooliman said, “To further enhance efficiency and identify areas of need in real time, Gift of the Givers has been partnered by Vula Mobile, which has 11000 registered medical professionals linked to it nationwide."
Sooliman added that medical professionals are making the most of the app and submitting requests for much needed resources.
Tents have already been setup at Helen Joseph, Chris Hani-Baragwanath and Rahima Moosa hospitals to reduce the risk of other patients being infected with the Covid-19 strain.
