Eurolab supports underprivileged South Africans and cancer care initiatives

Eurolab is a South African company and is committed to the country and believes strongly in South Africa’s future. We find ways to help organisations and individuals who are in need. The focus of our CSI programmes are in cancer care, however, we also support discretionary initiatives targeting poor communities where unemployment is high and many people are desperately in need of basic necessities. We also back Eurolab staff keen to get involved in fighting cancer. 

Taps open in the Dixie village

Until last year, the Dixie community, which is home to some 175 families, did not have access to clean, safe, running water. In April 2020, 15 taps installed across the Dixie village opened, ending years of struggle to find safe water to drink and use. Community members used to walk with buckets and wheelbarrows to find water. Some hired trucks and containers and drove far distances in search of water.

Eurolab’s Chairman brought the water scarcity issue in the Dixie village to the attention of Ivan Saltzman, Dis-Chem Pharmacies CEO in 2019. Eurolab has supported the Dixie village for several years, providing food parcels to those families most in need and supporting young people with their careers by providing bursaries.
