Sponsors of Brave: The Gratitude Season - nominee 7: Khanya Pharmacy in Dobsonville, Soweto

Meet the team of Khanya Pharmacy Watch as the community of Soweto shower the team of Khanya Pharmacy with gratitude. Khanya Pharmacy continuously serves the community of Soweto with endless grace and compassion. This is why the community is stepping out to say 'thank you'.

Khanya Pharmacy in Dobsonville Soweto actively seeks to uplift the community they are based in. With a passion for empowering the youth in the area the team at the pharmacy also look to help wherever they can with those in need.

With a policy of employing local Pharmacist Assistants and Pharmacists and assisting in paying their fees for further education, the team puts action behind their goal and aim to help alleviate youth unemployment. Beyond this, the pharmacy team seeks to make education more accessible to the learners by helping to pay for the students’ accommodation, food, and provide them with a stipend while they train. A vital and often overlooked part of any education journey.

Khanya Pharmacy also gives a helping hand to Margaret Gwele Primary School with food parcels for those in need, regularly supports sanitary towel drives and helps provide food parcels for students and their families at George Khoza Secondary School, and also assist Ilitha Creche where they help with blanket donations. The team at the pharmacy also look to provide a safe test centre for learners to study toward their IBT (International benchmark test) tests.

The pharmacy's generosity and community involvement doesn’t end there though. Khanya Pharmacy also extends their hand by helping to provide kit and sponsoring games for two local soccer teams.

It is because of Khanya Pharmacy’s undying generosity and dedication to serving the community of Soweto with open arms that the community and their collaborative NGO’s and NPO’s have joined forces to celebrate and thank them.

Why Sponsors of Brave

With the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic significant changes to our daily living have been experienced which has resulted in the dampening of the spirit of many South African residents. In light of this, and to work towards restoring belief and hope, it is Adcock Ingram OTC’s ambition to encourage our frontline HealthCare Professionals (HCPs) of South Africa, to continue to make a difference in the world and to recognise many of these individuals for their selfless sacrifice during the surge of the coronavirus infection. The HCP fraternity including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, paramedics, and other allied specialities. This campaign will allow pharmacy healthcare professionals to nominate themselves or be nominated by peers and other South African residents for a life-changing opportunity under the banner of bravery. Eight of these nominees will have the chance to share their story in a featured video and be treated to a ‘gratitude shower’ by members of their community and two lucky winners will get to pursue their ‘passion project’ through the campaign. This campaign is not just about these fearless pharmacists, but a call to action to all South African residents to recognise, celebrate and begin “THANKING THE BRAVE” HCPs in our society by nominating them for this worthy prize.
