The Dis-Chem Foundation

The Dis-Chem Foundation is providing care and support to improve the lives of individuals while relieving the burden on communities, families and friends. 

Based on their concern about the growing level of poverty in South Africa, the founders Ivan and Lynette Saltzman established the Dis-Chem Foundation in 2006. Their team of compassionate social workers and caregivers, work closely with registered NGOs to support and improve the lives of struggling communities.

Pharmacists who care for:
Impoverished families with no basic food and shelter
Abused children and abandoned babies who need a safe haven
Young girls in need of sanitary pads to ensure they go to school
People in need by bringing health care services to them

The Foundation is a beneficiary of the Dis-Chem Benefit Programme, whereby members earn rewards on what they spend at Dis-Chem Pharmacies and Baby City stores – and a percentage of the purchase value is donated to the Dis-Chem Foundation.
