Following President Cyril Ramaphosa's call for all South Africans to unite in the battle against the Covid-19, aQuellé has donated R500,000 towards the newly established Solidarity Fund. The independent fund will focus on combating and tracking the virus, caring for the sick and supporting those whose lives are disrupted. Administered through the private sector, it will complement the work already being done by government.
