Restonic SA has donated pillows and beds valued at R60,000 in total to 300 frontline healthcare workers at Tembisa Provincial Tertiary Hospital to help them get better sleep. The donation includes 300 latex chip pillows, 20 memory foam pillows, three queen-size beds valued at R6,000 each, and four single beds valued at R3,000 each.
Violet Ramalapa, acting nursing services manager, thanked the company, saying, “As health workers, we feel appreciated that our hard work is being recognised. Working extended hours is exhausting, but we took an oath to put people first and we shall stand by it through all circumstances. Recognition from organisations such as Restonic really goes a long way in giving us a boost when days are dark to carry on with the work that we do.”
Fuelling body and mind
Dale Harley, Restonic SA executive for sales and marketing, says the company salutes the dedication of the Tembisa Provincial Tertiary Hospital team and wanted to honour their hard work: “We are inspired by the frontline healthcare workers who continue to champion the greater good in South Africa during these challenging times. Because we believe that getting good rest is the best fuel you can get for your body and mind, we wanted to do what we can to support these amazing people with high-quality memory foam pillows, which we believe can make a massive difference in their quality of sleep.
“We also made three queen-size beds available and all the 300 people’s names were put in a hat and three winners picked out. We’ve decided to donate another four single beds valued at R3,000 each and will be delivering these once the lucky winners have been drawn.”
The winners of the three Queen-size Marvelous Middle Restonic Bazaruto base sets are Thembi Mnguni, Mamoabi Elizabeth Mohlekoa and Dineo Langa.
