The Transformation and Marketing Committee have created Chemistry with a Cause: A departmental initiative that connects our department with the community and allows us the opportunity to have a positive impact on society.

Given that August is Women’s Month, we are excited to invite you to participate in our first community outreach initiative from this platform.  

We have identified a local charity organisation, Ons Plek, based in Mowbray and will be collecting essential items to donate to them.

Ons Plek is a non-profit organisation that provides a safe haven for girls who have lived or begged on the streets. This Child and Youth Care Centre currently houses 35 girls between the ages of 13-15 years old across two properties in Mowbray and Woodstock. Their focus is to assist and help develop girls who have left home due to neglect, abuse and/or have been sent away by their families who are unable to adequately provide for them. Their programmes offer a holistic approach to help young girls cope with life events and work towards a better life.

The drop-off point for donated items will be at the Central Admin Office from 9h00-13h00 from now until 31 August.  

Any cash donations may be given to Dr Roxanne Mohunlal (Rm 4.01.6 or

We hope that you share our enthusiasm as we come together as a department and embark on this outreach project.
