he Off-Road Rescue Unit (ORRU) unsung heroes who for the past 30 years have rushed off to disaster scenes in the country and beyond its borders around the globe are on a new mission – as the Corona Virus Pandemic cripples South Africa, ORRU is providing logistical support to various organisations across the country,” says Ivor Rimmer, ORRU’s National Coordinator.
On Saturday 04 April, ORRU supported the #COVID19FACESHIELDS in collecting over 4000 printed face shields from 295 collection points across the province of Gauteng. ORRU deployed 28 vehicles which travelled a total of 3552 km in executing the collection. “These Face Shields will provide much needed protection to the front-line health care workers who we commend on their efforts and plead for everyone to stay home and stay safe. So others may live…”explains Rimmer.
