Local microtransactions platform, uKheshe, has announced an initiative to help its customers during the current COVID-19 outbreak and national lockdown, partnering with Africa Assist to launch a dedicated hotline called Call4Care.
Through uKheshe, users will have access to information about COVID-19, as well as a full 24-hour medical support service via phone, the firm explains. This service can be accessed by all uKheshe users by selecting the emergency option #1 on 010 444 0040, it adds.
“Knowledge is power but only for those who have access to it. We recognise that inclusion on all levels within South Africa is lacking. By making critical information available to the masses, for free, we hope to assist in fighting Covid-19,” says Erick Vischer, uKheshe head of compliance and insurance, regarding the initiative.
