Fleet Africa and Super Group have partnered with PinkDrive on the frontline by providing vehicles for their medical staff to reach the community “hot spots”. PinkDrive joined forces with the National Department of Health (NDoH) by providing their staff and vehicles to flatten the curve by providing screening and testing in what have become recognised high transmission areas in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.
“Super Group applauds PinkDrive for taking the initiative with the National Department of Health and is privileged to be able to assist in the rolling out of the testing of COVID-19 into areas that are in dire need during this crisis that we face as a country”, said John Mackay Group Company Secretary.
“FleetAfrica is proud to combine efforts with PinkDrive in the fight against COVID – 19. It is in our interest, as a company and as individuals, to do everything possible to stop the spread of Corona Virus”, said Bonisile Makubalo, Chief Executive Officer FleetAfrica.
For more than ten years, PinkDrive has made the health of vulnerable South Africans their priority. The thought is simple: ‘early detection will help prolong a life’. While the organisation’s historical role has been cancer detection, in these times of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, it has broadened its mission to prevent the further spread of the virus COVID-19.
“We mobilised all our resources and appealed to Corporates, Foreign Embassies and Philanthropic Organisations to partner us by funding the initiative to support the NDoH at this critical time. We are incredibly humbled by the commitment of the FleetAfrica and Super Group by providing essential vehicles for PinkDrive. Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika, #StaySafe #StayHome” said Noelene Kotschan CEO and Founder PinkDrive.
PinkDrive’s unerring mission mirrors that of the NDoH to prolong lives through the prevention of illness, disease, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles, and to consistently improve the health care delivery system by focusing on access, equity, efficiency, quality and sustainability.
PinkDrive offers gender related cancer screening services to the medically uninsured of South Africa. Their services include mammograms, clinical breast examinations, pap smears and PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) screening to the indigent communities of South Africa. PinkDrive also educates on the importance of early detection of gender related cancers.
