Sasol is donating R10m to help rebuild businesses and communities affected by the recent unrest in South Africa, particularly in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
Of the R10m, which was raised through corporate donation, employee giving mobilisation and SMME support, Sasol will contribute R2m to Gift of the Givers, and the balance to other smaller non-profit organisations on the ground that are supporting impacted communities, affected Sasol franchisees and SMMEs that do business with the company, as well as other businesses.

Sasol executive vice president: human resources and stakeholder relations Charlotte Mokoena, says while the recent unrest in parts of the country was indeed cause for despair, there are signs of hope on the horizon as ordinary citizens stand shoulder to shoulder to rebuild communities.

“One outcome of this unfortunate period is that it spurred a greater sense of shared responsibility among us. While the unrest was another blow in a prolonged pandemic, it also became a springboard for people from all walks of life to come forward and make a difference,” said Mokoena.
