Movit has vividly been part of this cause since its inception in 2016 & this donation is our way of saying we are committed to working with partners and people that have the community at the center of what they do because it is a key facet of our business. We will also be visiting Nkozi hospital on the Marathon day to support patients with an assortment of sanitary products and equipment including sanitizers, soaps and buckets among others that are essential in the fight against COVID-19 but also facilitate patient care.
