How you’ve helped us do good during a trying time, via Sanlam Reality’s R1 million donation to NGO Meals on Wheels.

While Sanlam Reality members have experienced limited use of their programme benefits during the COVID-19 lockdown measures, Sanlam Reality announced a commitment to support Meals on Wheels on behalf of its members. As part of this commitment to Meals on Wheels, Sanlam Reality has helped to provide over 108 000 in food parcels and 15 330 cooked meals to bring relief to the most vulnerable during lockdown.

A big thank you from Meals on Wheels

“Thanks to Sanlam Reality’s spirit of caring – and that of its members, like you – a great many starving friends have received friendship, love and nourishing food over the past few months of national lockdown,” says Erika Botha, public relations manager at NGO Meals on Wheels. “We’re greatly encouraged by your benevolence and we applaud you and your shareholders and members for your big-heartedness. On behalf of all who have already benefited, and those who still will in the future, we offer you our sincere thanks.”

The efforts have provided 50 000 meals to those in need, across six provinces in South Africa: Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Northern Cape, Free State, the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape.

Giving back is at the heart of who we are

Giving has long been a feature of loyalty programmes, and the COVID-19 pandemic presented an ideal opportunity to contribute to the vulnerable on behalf of Sanlam Reality members. “Our members – like you – have not been able to travel or enjoy their fitness and entertainment benefits, so we decided to support this initiative on their behalf. We hope to make a meaningful contribution to easing the hardships many will face while remaining relevant to our members during this period of social distancing” says André Larisma, CEO of Sanlam Reality.

Thank you for being a Sanlam Reality member, and for enabling Sanlam Reality to do good when those in need around us have needed it most. You’ve been part of #MakingGoodAReality even under the most trying and unprecedented of circumstances.
