Philani Maswati face masks also donated to the elderly people so that they were safe from the corona virus.
Dlamini said as an organisation, they would continue to take care of the needs of the elderly people. Adding to the food hampers, the organisation was accompanied by Raleigh Fitkin Memorial’s (RFM) medical team which was made up of medical specialists who attended to the elderly’s different ailments.
The elderly had a chance to be screened for illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and other diseases that normally attack older people. Most of the elderly were grateful to the organisation, as they stated that it was hard for them to reach hospital because of the restricted travel that came with the current Covid-19 lockdown.
