The Sponsors of Brave campaign – twelfth nominee – Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman from Umhlanga, KZN

Author: riaan@wecanchange.co.za

Meet Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman who is driven by his passion to give back and is uplifting his community with the assistance of his four-legged furry friend Humphrey.

At 72 years old, Umhlanga-based Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman has served his community for over 50 years. 

And his four-legged, furry assistant Humphrey has been a fixture at his side since Immerman adopted the little dog from the local SPCA. Humphrey is a calming, supportive friend to all those who visit the pharmacy and helps encourage scared kids to take their medicine when sick. 

 

Immerman says his passion for pharmacy, and in life, stems from giving back to society instead of taking. 

This shines through in the care he takes of patients and customers, and in his drive to support the incredible work that the SPCA does. With Humphrey as the inspiration, Immerman started fundraising for the SPCA six years ago and has already raised R600 000. He hopes to increase this number to R1 000 000 - to make Humphrey a dog in a million.
