Dis-chem donates R96 000 to charity caregivers St. Luke's Hospice

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.

Lynette Saltzman, director of the Dis-chem Foundation said that the local hospice did important community work treating and counselling terminally ill patients, often with cancer or HIV/Aids.

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.
