At the recent Gauteng Netball championships held in Sedibeng, Emerald Resort & Casino took care of all the contestant’s hygiene needs by donating 254 ‘health packs’.

“After partnering with the Sedibeng Netball Federation, we jumped at the opportunity to assist with providing sanitary towels to the players,” says Emerald Resort & Casino’s Marketing Executive Tanuja Gangabishun. “We know that female hygiene products are not that easy to come by and we are so pleased to be able to assist.”

“The Emerald CSI committee thought that it would be a good gesture to add products that most ladies will use,” confirms Gloria Mokoana, Learning & Development Manager at Emerald Resort & Casino. “We firmly believe that hygiene in the community comes first and decided to add to the request by adding bath soaps, toothbrush and toothpaste.  We wanted to give the ladies something that they can take home and be able to use for some time.”

This was the first time the netball championship was hosted in Sedibeng at the Isak Steyl Stadium, Vanderbijlpark. The championship is the premium netball competition in Gauteng Province allowing young girls and women to showcase their talents with an opportunity to be selected to represent Gauteng Province at a national level.

“We, as a company, are always enthusiastically supporting our local community and look forward to seeing many local girls being selected for the higher netball levels,” concludes Tanuja.
