Corporate Social Investment

@DrMzi we are passionate about community development. We collectively, and individually, contribute to various charity initiatives.

WheelWell

In November 2020, Dr Mzi received a surprise call that the charity ticket that we bought to contribute to the WheelWell fundraising efforts was drawn for a prize. We were excited to hear this news, but most importantly excited to have had the opportunity to contribute to the organization. To find out how you can contribute to WheelWell please contact Peggy: peggie@wheelwell.org.za 

CWENA

We were fortunate to be able to contribute to the CWENA through fundraising that was achieved through the DrMzi inaugural annual breakfast event. The event was held at the Lombardy East Methodist Church in November 2020 and attended by people from various organizations, aspiring and established entrepreneurs. We would like to thank all those who made this event and the donation to CWENA possible. Should you wish to contribute to CWENA, please email Sharon cwena2020@gmail.com  

Miss Commonwealth SA

DrMzi was invited to support the Miss Commonwealth SA charity pageant. The pageant was held at Birchwood Hotel in December 2020. Through the tickets, DrMzi was able to support this event. Should you have inquiries or wish to support Ms SA Commonwealth in anyway, please contact Ngawethu misscommonwealthsa16@gmail.com
