CapeTalk has partnered with the Dis-Chem Foundation to make a meaningful difference to great local organisations.

St. Lukes Hospice's Melissa Zaayman literally had her breath taken away when she heard that the Dis-Chem Foundation would donate R96 000 to their supportive care organisation.

We really wan to give some help to St. Lukes Hospice for the marvelous work they do in the field of oncology and HIV/Aids care.
