Dunoon frontline workers spoiled

Over 150 frontline healthcare workers at the Dunoon Clinic in Milnerton were honoured on Wednesday 23 September as part of Heritage Day celebrations.

Fair Cape Dairies hosted a braai for the workers in appreciation of their phenomenal contribution and personal sacrifices made during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fair Cape Dairies provided platters of delicious braai goodies, juices and desserts to the healthcare workers. The day also incorporated the clinic’s annual Heritage Day cultural costume competition.

Dunoon clinic manager, Warren Caesar, said they were approached by Fair Cape Dairies who wished to show their appreciation to the clinic’s frontline workers.

“They offered to do a braai for Heritage Day and we were all in agreement with it. It latches onto our culture of values at this facility.

“We have a very strong culture of team support and working together. On a monthly basis, we try and do something for our staff like having a hot chocolate day, pancakes and team building. Although we get salaries, we need to say thank you and we need to appreciate staff on the softer matters of life.

“We included all our workers, as well as contracted staff which are our cleaners and security. We exist for our community and the security guards’ welcome makes our clients feel welcome at the facility,” Caesar said.

The frontline workers were in awe of Fair Cape Dairies’ kind gesture, with most of them wearing traditional clothes to commemorate Heritage Day.

One of the frontline workers at the clinic, Gloria Smith, said they are very thankful to Fair Cape Dairies for their generosity and kindness.

“We are very grateful to Fair Cape Dairies for the delicious meal. It makes you feel good when you know there are companies that care and do things to show their appreciation,” Smith said.

The event took place in celebration of the October relaunch of Fair Cape Dairies’ long life milk packaging, which will include a thank you message to frontline health workers for their invaluable contribution to the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fair Cape Dairies’ marketing director, Louis Loubser, says the company is humbled by the dedication, commitment and courage of the frontline health workers during the healthcare crisis the country has faced.

Loubser added, “These extraordinary people deserve our deepest gratitude and admiration, and we hope the simple gesture of appreciation we’ve made today will spread joy among them as the country prepares to celebrate Heritage Day.”
