As an inclusive employer, with 27 years experience in design, manufacture &services related to posture support pediatric mobility devices, the Shonaquip Social Enterprise can manufacture relatively low cost, multiple use, full-face respirators for health care workers or any at-risk person to prevent exposure to Covid19. Design based on partnership with Southampton University, UK.
Providing essential, affordable medical equipment for South Africa and neighboring countries also creates an additional income stream, ensuring ongoing work for our disability-inclusive assembly teams during this economically difficult time. By doing so, we hope to keep every one of our highly valued staff members employed in order for them to become part of the essential people fighting the pandemic, rather than socio-economic victims of Covid19.
We now need 940 000.00 ZAR to set up & manufacture the first 500 masks, after which the sale of the masks will carry the project sustainably forward.
