Assupol Dedicates Entire Billboard Campaign to One Health Worker

Assupol Dedicates Entire Billboard Campaign to One Health Worker

Assupol has devoted a whole billboard campaign to celebrate Eagan Sithole, an emergency care worker who is fighting to save lives during the worst pandemic in a hundred years. Through the microcosm of Eagan’s story, the South African insurance company delivers a deeply moving salute to all health workers across South Africa.

The campaign was conceptualised by agency Joe Public, who leveraged the power of outdoor media during the hard lockdown, when traditional billboards were mostly wasted space as hardly anyone was on the road – except for essential service personnel.

The film was directed by Lebogang Rasethaba from Arcade Content, who said: "This was a special project to work on because of the content, and the context. As a director when you get such a strong idea you need to find the balance between bringing your magic, but also allowing the idea to manifest naturally and fully. Because the idea was so solid, I decided to focus on the character and her personal story, her humanity.”

Assupol CEO, Bridget Mokwena-Halala, added: “Serving those who serve is what we are grounded on as an organisation, and we want all our frontline workers to know we are constantly behind them."

The billboards will remain up for another month as thanks to all those who are serving on the frontline.
