The Scientology Volunteer Ministers have extended their free sanitising and decontamination services to buses, to minimise the spread of Covid-19 amongst commuters.
The organisation dedicates their resources and time decontaminating 600 buses daily. Most South Africans rely on public transport to commute for various reasons, including going to work and school.
According to the organisation’s public affairs director Sandile Hlayisi, they felt the need to focus on driver and commuter safety during these unprecedented times.The organisation has been decontaminating Rea Vaya buses every night for the past three weeks to curb the virus.
“Standing together with the City of Tshwane Bus service is the right thing to do as their employees put their lives at risk by transporting thousands of commuters every day. We wanted to ensure that they operate in a safe as possible environment, but to also provide a safe transport mode for commuters as well” emphasised Hlayisi. Sanitising remains one of the key aspects of curbing Covid-19 especially in a province now the epicentre of this pandemic.
The Scientology Volunteer Ministers started their decontamination drive with minibus taxis. They have provided their time and resources to over 300 000 taxis, in ten ranks across Gauteng since the lockdown was declared.
The organisation has also decontaminated over 12,600 government buildings to date.
