SEE provides linen and furniture for hospitals and schools

Hospital linen

To meet the hos­pi­tal’s needs due to coro­n­avirus, the Sup­port­ed Employ­ment Enter­prise (SEE) under the Min­istry of Employ­ment and Labour said it is ready to pro­vide hos­pi­tal equip­ment includ­ing linen for the depart­ment of health to buy.

The min­istry estab­lished the enti­ty in 1943 to cre­ate employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ty  unable to find work in the labour mar­ket due to suf­fer­ing.

The pro­ceeds and sales of var­i­ous goods pro­duced through this enti­ty ben­e­fit the work­force, includ­ing per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties.

SEE act­ing CEO Sam Moro­to­ba said that because of  COVID-19, their fac­to­ries in eight provinces are work­ing hard to pro­duce flax and oth­er prod­ucts to meet the needs faced by hos­pi­tals.

“Since the begin­ning of the con­fine­ment, SEE has been pro­duc­ing some per­son­al pro­tec­tive equip­ment, includ­ing face masks, pro­tec­tive cloth­ing, dis­in­fec­tion tables and hos­pi­tal linen,” Moro­to­ba said.

He said that SEE also man­u­fac­tures school fur­ni­ture in 13 fac­to­ries across the coun­try, except in Mpumalan­ga.

“School fur­ni­ture includes 15,000 com­bined desks of var­i­ous sizes, suit­able for pri­ma­ry, and high school. The fur­ni­ture also includes about 5000 util­i­ty        chairs that can be pur­chased,” Moro­to­ba said.

Moro­to­la said that with the open­ing of the school, SEE is ready to pro­vide fur­ni­ture to Edu­ca­tion Depart­ments.

“Our earn­ings and sales ben­e­fit our ded­i­cat­ed team of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties,” Moro­to­ba said.

He added that oth­er prod­ucts in stock include 13-type blan­kets, acrylic blan­kets, bed sheet pil­low­cas­es, 43-type hos­pi­tal bath tow­els and white counter pants.
