Vodacom lends supports to visually impaired in SA

Must Read

vodacom_ceo2.jpgTHE visually-impaired in South Africa received yet another boost from the country’s leading mobile network services provider, Vodacom over the weekend.

South Africa’s biggest company in the sector pledged to donate a further R30 000 to restore the sight of these disadvantaged members of society.
This followed Vodacom-sponsored-Bloemfontein Celtic, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates- teams scoring a total of three goals in the weekend’s Absa premiership matches. Through the initiative, the company donates R10 000 per every goal that the teams score in every league match.


The teams experienced mixed fortunes with Celtic beating Ajax Cape Town by 2-0 while Vhiefs were not as successful, losing 2-1 to Moroka Swallows in a Soweto derby. Pirates failed to find the net after Santos held them to a draw in Cape Town.
Vodacom introduced the charity initiative during the annual Vodacom Challenge that features Chiefs, Pirates and a selected visiting side.

The Vodacom Foundation, which implements the project, said “With these cause-related campaigns, we have raised awareness of the work the projects are doing to assist communities and people on the one hand, and of Vodacom’s commitment to become a caring corporate citizen on the other.”

“This project forms part of the health portfolio of the Vodacom Foundation, one of two major funding areas. The Foundation invests in health projects as Vodacom believes that every South African has a right to basic health care facilities, and the company is committed to helping government address the health challenges that face South Africa.”
