Nedbank Hermanus has partnered with Voëlklip’s OK MiniMark to help residents who have had to quarantine or self-isolate themselves due to either exposure to or a positive test for COVID-19.

On Thursday, 16 July 2020, the Overstrand COVID-19 Disaster Management team received a donation of 120 boxes pre-packed with non-perishable food items such as canned goods and beans, etc. Also included as part of the donation (and neatly wrapped), were fresh vegetables that provide a perfect opportunity to assist with the nutritional needs of COVID-affected patients.

“We hope this food makes their isolation and recovery feel a bit less daunting,” said Werner van der Merwe, business banking manager of Nedbank Hermanus.

He confirmed that ward councillors are assisting the Overstrand Disaster Management Centre in identifying the most vulnerable households in quarantine who will receive these parcels.
