Panado - the healing power of a dose of care

Itumeleng’s mom is a single parent and a flight attendant. This means that she is out of town several days a week. During these days, Itumeleng’s aunt takes care of her.

When Itumeleng gets a sore throat or fever during the days that she’s at her aunt, she always misses her mom terribly. Fortunately her aunt knows that, with a dose of care and some Panado, Itumeleng will feel well again in no time at all.

Different kinds of families, the same care

Itumeleng’s story isn’t unique. Panado understands that there are many different types of families in South Africa, who all show care for each other. Panado also knows just how powerful a dose of care can be.

Everyone has the innate ability to care and it is something the world needs more of to heal. A dose of care can turn a bad day into a good one, a headache into relief and a painful ache into a thing of the past.

Relieving pain is a demonstration of care

Panado places the emphasis on being “a dose of care” and not just “the GP’s choice”. Panado is more than simply a household name in South Africa. A dose of care can heal not only the physical pain of the sufferer, but also gives the caregiver the opportunity to show that they care.

And who knows better how much a dose of care means than mothers and fathers? From infants and toddlers, to teenagers, young adults and even grandparents, everyone needs to know that someone has their best interest at heart. So, when a baby is teething or dad has a headache, there is a quick and easy solution.
