February 2021 – KIC sponsors a fridge to a Covid outreach project in KZN Chatsworth
Dr. Diveshni Govender and KIC Sales Director Peter Brownlee
Dr. Diveshni Govender, qualified in 2006 from Wits university and started a GP practice on 2017 after worked in state hospitals. Dr Govender initiated an outreach by mobilizing community members to acquire a venue and source volunteers and sponsorships. The aim of the outreach was to provide an interim day relief centre for Covid-19 positive patients requiring medical care.
KIC was more than happy to assist the Clinic by donating a much-needed fridge. It was our privilege to meet Dr. Govender who is an example of a pillar of strength to the community and support her and her staff in this great initiative.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to hospitals being inundated with patients, putting a huge strain on the healthcare system. Often, individuals requiring medical care such as oxygen and IV medication are not able to access hospital care due to the high volume of cases. The need for community-based care became evident, and this led to the start of this outreach project. The relief centre is completely free for anyone in need of the service. The efficient running of the centre relies on volunteers and sponsorships.
KIC is proud to be associated with this great lifesaving initiative and wishes Dr. Govender and staff all the best in their endeavor.
