The Stock Visibility Solution (SVS) enables nurses at clinics to manage the availability of chronic medication and avoid stock-outs.
Vodacom Foundation also has long-standing relationships with several non-profit organisations. Our intention is not to simply offer money, but also bring our expertise to these projects, so that the funding is used to maximum benefit.
Some of the partners include:
· The South Aafrican National Council For The Blind (SANCB)
· Smile Foundation
· Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Foundation (WSPCF)
