Riding on their slogan, Bigger Savings Better Living, Trans Cash & Carry has invested P3 million in Sebego clinic in Kanye towards modernising and upgrading the health facility from just being a health post.

At a groundbreaking ceremony last week, Trans chair, Manhar Mooney stated that as part of their corporate social responsibility which aims to improve the lives of ordinary Batswana, the company saw it befitting to support the Kanye community. He elaborated that their gesture is not only to upgrade the clinic for the community, but also it aligns with the 2030 Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDGs), particularly the one on Good Health and Wellbeing. “We embark on another bold movement of these clinics after we recently built yet another clinic in Gasita,” Mooney said. “Healthcare is a fundamental human right and by investing in these clinics, we invest in Batswana and the well-being of our communities.” As the slogan stipulates, Mooney highlighted that Trans saw it befitting to give back to the community that incessantly supports them and gives them the better life they deserve. “This clinic symbolises our unwavering commitment to improving the lives of Batswana through upgrading this clinic from just a health post to a general clinic so that it can offer more services so that residents don't have to travel far to get help,” he said.

For his part, Member of Parliament for Kanye South, Dr Lemogang Kwape stated that what Trans did was a great initiative that will go a long way in sustaining residents of Kanye, especially from his constituency. “It gives me enormous pleasure to be standing before you to start this groundbreaking project for this clinic and I would like to give thanks to Trans for doing this gesture as I know of the different priorities they have which one of them includes creating jobs,” he said. Kwape added that what Trans has accomplished goes a long way, bearing in mind that it comes after the Gasita clinic was completed and handed over to the community. “What Trans is doing is remarkable and I would like to extend gratitude to them that soon after that I told you about a challenge we have, and you acceded to it and for that, I thank you. To Kanye, this building is for you please take care of it,” he said.
