Ghanzi — Tsabong-based Petxy Investments on May 26 donated two foot operated industrial dispensers, 10 elbow dispensers and 186 masks to Ghanzi District Council. Handing over the donation, managing director of Petxy Investments, Ms Diana Kaartze said their donation would help in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
"As the washing of hands with clean water and soap or sanitiser and wearing masks is a new normal, most influenza viruses would be at bay," Ms Kaartze said. She noted that the foot and elbow operated dispensers minimised the risks of transmitting the virus.
Ms Kaartze said the two foot operated industrial dispensers were valued at P2 200 each, and that the elbow operated dispensers were valued at P800 each. She said the machines were durable, user-friendly and cost effective, adding that they could be used either with sanitiser or water and soap. She also promised that they would maintain the devises for two years.
For his part, Ghanzi district commissioner, Mr Mooketsi Lesetedi praised the company for travelling all the way to Ghanzi to make the donation. Mr Lesetedi said the machines would be installed in schools and that they would make the environment safer for pupils and educators.
Mr Lesetedi also said he hoped the devices would challenge and motivate pupils to come up with innovations.
