Joekels donates over 1 million Rooibos teabags to support the health of communities in need.

To align with their Corporate Social Investment outreach to communities in need, we have welcomed our newest donor, tea and coffee masters – Joekels. Over the course of the next few months, Joekels has committed to donating a massive 1 million Rooibos teabags for our beneficiaries across KZN.

Starting in September 2022 for a period of seven months, every month Joekels is donating 96 000 Laager Rooibos teabags with our distribution focusing on community kitchens, and shelters with the addition of 80 000 Tea4Kid Original Rooibos teabags focusing distribution to ECD centres within our beneficiary organisation network.

“We chose to donate Laager Rooibos and Laager Tea4Kidz Rooibos due to the range of health benefits that Rooibos offers for people of all ages. Laager Rooibos is the only teabag endorsed by the Heart & Stroke Foundation SA, and aside from the heart-health benefits Laager Rooibos offers a range of other benefits – it’s naturally caffeine free, high in antioxidants and low in tannins, which means it’s the perfect hydrating beverage for children and grown-ups alike. We want as many South Africans as possible to benefit from the nutritional advantages of Rooibos. Our partnership with FoodForward SA will enable us to reach areas with the greatest need and have the biggest impact.” Joekels Marketing & Brand Strategy Manager, Candice Sessions.

Thank you Joekels for collaborating with us in such a meaningful way. With your support, we can continue nourishing the lives of vulnerable communities in need.
