- Kolisi also urged South Africans to all play their part and to help wherever possible
- The Kolisi foundation will be assisting medical facilities in a big way by providing in excess of 4 000 litres of hand sanitiser and other important supplies
Springbok skipper Siya Kolisi heaped praise on President Cyril Ramaphosa for his decisive stance in tackling the coronavirus pandemic.
Via the Stormers website, Kolisi said, “We as a nation should be proud of the way our commander-in-chief, our president, has laid the law."
However, the World Cup winner was quick to add that all South Africans will be required to do their bit.
Kolisi added, “But we can’t leave everything to the government. We all have a role to play. For some of us, that is to stay at home right now, and for some of us, we can do a bit more than that. That is to offer resources and help out any way we can.”
The South African reported that the Kolisi foundation has committed to supplying in excess of 4 000 litres of hand sanitiser, face shields and hundreds of goggles to medical facilities.
The Bok captain recently formed the foundation alongside his wife Rachel.
The current initiative will be rolled out to supply Khayelitsha Hospital in Cape Town and Livingstone Hospital in Port Elizabeth.
Meanwhile, Kolisi was pictured earlier with comedian Trevor Noah and the photo went viral.
Briefly.co.za reported on how Noah inspired Kolisi through his own personal journey.
