Expression of interest to provide construction services in KZN

Invitation for service providers In the construction industry to submit an expression of interest for the rebuilding and/or repair of affected water and sanitation infrastructure at various schools in KwaZulu-Natal

BACKGROUND

During April and May 2022, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) was ravaged by floods which caused extensive damage to public and private sector infrastructure and property. Areas most impacted were along the coastal regions. Government, along with Civil Society organisations, NGOs and the Private Sector mobilised in response to this disaster to provide assistance to impacted communities. Sasol pledged its support to communities affected by the floods in KZN, which included immediate humanitarian relief as well as the rebuilding of affected infrastructure.  As part of this response, Sasol engaged with the KZN Department of Education (DoE) with a view to provide assistance for impacted schools identified by KZN DoE.  It was agreed that Sasol will support the DoE by the rebuilding and/or repair of affected water and sanitation infrastructure at various schools in KZN.

Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA) is an independent non-profit organisation that promotes and facilitates effective giving, volunteering, and social investment. As part of its mandate, CAFSA partners with corporates to effectively act as an independent implementation agent to assist these corporates to achieve their Corporate Social Investment (CSI) goals.  Sasol appointed CAFSA as implementation partner for the rebuilding and/or repair of the affected water and sanitation infrastructure.

To assist with technical expertise, CAFSA engaged LA Consulting Engineers (LA) in July 2022 to conduct inspections of the schools identified above and compile a report on the damage caused, and rebuild and/or repairs required at the affected schools for consideration by CAFSA and SASOL.

YOU CAN HELP:

Donate to SAPF's Emergency Fund to assist NPOs during the COVID-19 crisis

Southern Africa Philanthropy Foundation (SAPF) has launched an emergency fund to support local Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) during this challenging period.

With the economic and health challenges emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, thousands of NPOs are set to be impacted by funding shortages, which will result in a reduction or discontinuation of services and dedicated staff losing their jobs.

To keep these critical services going, SAPF is mobilising support to make funding available to help NPOs who render essential services to the most marginalised individuals, groups and communities in our society.

We are calling on both individuals and corporates to donate. The relevant bank details for donations are listed below.

SAPF will process all donations and ensure that due diligence, governance compliance and reporting are fully implemented. SAPF will further ensure that all donations are designated to validated beneficiary organisations. Donors will also be issued with Section 18(a) certificates for income tax purposes.
