Khanya Pharmacy

Pharmacy in

Khanya Pharmacy in Dobsonville Soweto actively seeks to uplift the community they are based in. With a passion for empowering the youth in the area the team at the pharmacy also look to help wherever they can with those in need.

With a policy of employing local Pharmacist Assistants and Pharmacists and assisting in paying their fees for further education, the team puts action behind their goal and aim to help alleviate youth unemployment. Beyond this, the pharmacy team seeks to make education more accessible to the learners by helping to pay for the students’ accommodation, food, and provide them with a stipend while they train. A vital and often overlooked part of any education journey.

Khanya Pharmacy also gives a helping hand to Margaret Gwele Primary School with food parcels for those in need, regularly supports sanitary towel drives and helps provide food parcels for students and their families at George Khoza Secondary School, and also assist Ilitha Creche where they help with blanket donations. The team at the pharmacy also look to provide a safe test centre for learners to study toward their IBT (International benchmark test) tests.

The pharmacy's generosity and community involvement doesn’t end there though. Khanya Pharmacy also extends their hand by helping to provide kit and sponsoring games for two local soccer teams.

It is because of Khanya Pharmacy’s undying generosity and dedication to serving the community of Soweto with open arms that the community and their collaborative NGO’s and NPO’s have joined forces to celebrate and thank them.
