Community activist and musician Deen Louw, aka D’Louw, is honouring frontline workers by hosting the Heroes Gift Pack Drive.
He says: “It's without a doubt our essential workers who are giving their all (during the pandemic) but don’t get the credit they deserve.
“With this in mind, we are putting a luxury gift pack together as a token of saying thank you for sacrificing, at times, your personal time to care for our community at a time when it's much needed.”
The Deen Louw Foundation will also donate chicken and sausage to hospitals to host a braai day and then sell the food to raise funds.
In addition, D’Louw and other musicians will provide entertainment at the events at no cost.
“This gift pack handover will come with a live performance by a few dedicated artists who do not want anything in return; all they want to do is bring a little joy in all the essential workers' hearts.
“We have visited some of the hospitals and experienced with our own eyes what these essential workers have to put up with just to make our families’ lives a little more comfortable.”
The braai day will happen on 15 April at various government hospitals around Cape Town.
Deen appeals to the public to assist: “People who would like to donate luxury items for the gift pack, can contact us on 072 270 4421.
“We also need pyjamas for kids at hospitals, it does not have to be brand new but still in good condition.”
